The kind of film that requires its audience to be on a very specific cultural wavelength to fully embrace, but its openness and heart should be enough to win over even the most jaded among us.

Some of the songs aren't as strong as others, but the film somehow carries them off with an air of self-aware, carefree charisma.

It's a bit too restrained on all fronts, but the film's young leads are wonderful, the songs are catchy and clever (Belle & Sebastian fans will be thrilled), the cinematography is shimmery and sharp, and it's an all-around pleasurable experience.

Look past those bright pop montages, watch Browning emote 1,000 things with just her eyes, and really listen to the lyrics to get the full picture.

It's also a much-needed story about a young woman taking her own messy life into her own imperfect hands and making art out of it, warts and all.

God Help the Girl is a smart, powerful little flick. Sometimes I hated it. But I won't forget it.

God Help the Girl is about aspirations and goals, musical or otherwise. Murdoch is working some things out here, gracefully on the whole.

The movie is like a milk shake so sweet that you want to keep drinking, even as you begin to gag.

It's adorable. It's also very thin.

I can't help but have a pooling soft spot shy of a puddle of swoon for "God Help The Girl," the expectedly twee but crazy-charming lovable coming-of-age musical written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, also known as the lead singer of Belle & Sebastian.

Too cute at times, but ultimately kind of charming.

Browning, staring down the camera and singing up a storm, brings buckets of soulfulness to a script that might not be terribly deep.

Murdoch's film is sweet monument to that age, when life had the promise of a perfectly crafted pop song. God Help the Girl is not so perfectly crafted, but the promise -- oh, the promise is irresistible.

God Help the Girl's second-act showstopper "Musician, Please Take Heed" probably won't become a "Let It Go"-level cultural phenomenon, but it very much deserves to be.

If, like me, you have a weakness for movies where people burst into song, this will be right up your alley

God Help the Girl is extremely twee. It gives you every reason to hate it, and yet, despite its affectations, it is also pretty wonderful.
September 8, 2014
The lively, playful, self-aware musical God Help the Girl has such a will-o'-the-wisp quality you fear it will disappear if you attempt to fence it.
September 8, 2014
God Help the Girl is like a pop song that is a bit unshapely and a little silly, but you can't get it out of your head.

Twee indie musical about art's healing power has charm.
