Audience Reviews for God Help the Girl

  • Apr 29, 2015
    Belle and Sebastian's songs highlight this story about a depressed woman who forms a band with a quirky hipster. Tonally inconsistent, God Help the Girl splits its personality from a so-quirky-it's-sweet love-ish story to a sad tale about a woman's struggle with mental illness. It is as though director Stuart Murdoch couldn't figure out what story to craft with the assortment of songs. Emily Browning, Olly Alexander, and Skins and Game of Thrones alum, the ever-delightful Hannah Murray all give hipster-cute performances that should be in a different movie, one that actually takes advantage of their charms. Overall, if you're tired of the hipster aesthetic, you should see the opposite of this film.

    Liked this. Not my usual thing at all, being a musical, but most of the songs are good and I liked the style of the whole movie. I think I would wear just about everything Emily wears here! It maybe could have been slightly shorter, and Cassie's voice irritated me, but mostly good.

    An Interesting British musical about a teenager with an eating disorder who struggles to make friends and lives for music. Exceedingly catch songs and a great cast make this worth seeing.

    A charming little british musical backed by hypnotic tracks and gorgeous cinematography. God Help The Girl feels like a classic movie, the upbeat energy contrasting the characters' struggles in the film carried it gracefully. The movie has it's faults but none is too distracting to overshadow the story. Stuart Murdoch's directorial debut is not that bad, I'm excited for what the future holds for him as a director.
