God Help the Girl
In "God Help the Girl," first-time writer/director Stuart Murdoch creates a coming-of-age story that doubles as an indie-pop musical. The project began as a suite of songs, written while Murdoch was in between records. He nurtured it for a decade into a fully formed film, set in Glasgow & populated by mods, rockers, and emo kids who sing and dance. With its mix of memorable songs and strong performances, "God Help the Girl" is sure to stick with you.
