Aro Recommended God Help the Girl


Scotland / UK 2014, 112 minutes
Dir. Stuart Murdoch
Rating: [M] Offensive language,sexual references and drug use.

“has a Judy Garland/Mickey Rooney let's-put-on-a-show innocence, and exuberance.”~Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

Aroview: Belle & Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch writes and directs this 60s-inspired musical set in Glasgow about an emotionally troubled young woman whose songwriting aspirations lead her to cross paths with two fledgling artists.

Featuring a gorgeous collection of songs, Murdoch's skills as a tune and wordsmith well exceed his abilities as a director but its still eminently watchable, with Australian Emily Browning having a voice and a face "that could take her places".
