Celebrating the preview of Stuart Murdoch’s God Help the Girl on Saturday, August 16th at the IFI, followed by a satellite stream of Belle and Sebastian performing at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh, we have two pairs of tickets to give away to two lucky winners!
Eve (Emily Browning) is a troubled young woman with a vivid imagination. She meets James (Olly Alexander), a sensitive musician, and the pair bond over the notion of forming a band together. Joined by the sweet-natured Cassie (Hannah Murray), the group spends a Glasgow summer talking about music, ideas and plans for the future. James agonises over whether he should confess to Eve that he has fallen in love with her, but he is not her only admirer.
The directorial debut of Stuart Murdoch is as sincere, courageous and loveable as the music he makes with Belle and Sebastian. With its attractive cast kitted out in jaunty berets, Breton shirts, vintage frocks and hairslides, God Help the Girl emerges as a delicious pop musical, a refreshingly uncynical celebration of youth and dreamers. Only the most jaded will deny a place in their hearts for its numerous delights, the fabulous soundtrack being the first of them.
