God Help the Girl Trailer

"God help the girl, she needs all the help she can get!" Dang, this looks good! An early teaser trailer for Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch's directorial debut pop musical God Help the Girl, which premiere at Sundance 2014 this January. Emily Browning (from Sucker Punch, Sleeping Beauty, Pompeii) stars along with Olly Alexander (from Great Expectations) and Hannah Murray (from "Game of Thrones") as three friends who form a pop group in the bohemian fantasia of Glasgow's West End. It looks like so much fun, with an vintage vibe to it and lots of smiling, goofy, sing-songy moments to it - which make quite an impact in this 70 second teaser trailer. This might be a must watch if pop music is your thing. Fire this up!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Stuart Murdoch's God Help the Girl, from Apple (via The Film Stage):

God Help the Girl is both written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian (@bellesglasgow), making his feature debut. From writer/director Stuart Murdoch comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe—low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there’s only one thing to do: form a pop group. This film premiered at Sundance 2014, and also played at the Berlinale, Newport Beach, Seattle, Sydney and New Zealand Film Festivals, too.

such a thing as too much indie?

Karl Nilsson on Jul 18, 2014


No! Don't say that! But yes I feel you... Just too many indie films that are all trying to break out and be the next big thing, when so many of them are lackluster or just tell too personal of a story, or just don't offer much. They may be well-made, they may have passion behind them, but too many of these waters down the experience. In general I try to seek out the best of the best. I didn't even see this at Sundance, but the trailer makes it look pretty dang good. But... I'm honestly just not sure.
