Eve escapes from the psychiatric hospital where she is being treated for anorexia nervosa and makes her way to Glasgow, hoping to become a musician. At a gig, she meets James, a lifeguard and aspiring songwriter. He introduces her to his guitar student Cassie, and the three become friends.Eve meets Anton, the arrogant singer of Wobbly-Legged Rat, a Glasgow band attracting attention from a local radio station. She gives him a tape of her music to pass on and they begin seeing each other.James convinces Eve she needs bass and drums to finish her songs. They and Cassie form a band, God Help the Girl, with some local musicians. Anton admits he never gave Eve's tape to the radio producers, saying she needs better production and musicianship, and they argue.James discovers Eve's relationship with Anton and becomes distanced from her. Feeling alone, Eve takes drugs and returns to hospital. She tells James she plans to attend music college in London, and they reconcile. After God Help the Girl performs their final concert, the radio station play Eve's tape. The next day, she leaves for London.This is not just a bunch of cheap hipsters, this is an ode to the whole indie scene we're experiencing. Appearently it all started as a project from Belle and Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch that consisted of kind of a female chorus singing some songs and then he turned it into a movie. AN AWESOME MOVIE
This movie is warm and welcoming as well as painful and maybe even tragic, as it follows Eve on her happines and misery.
Each one of the characters have their own struggles and dreams, and somehow the movie makes you sympathize with them, letting you understand for yourself that none of them are more important than the other.
God Help The Girl is about a bunch of grown-teens that have inspirations and goals, not just musical hopes of course, and thow they approach them differently.
If I had to point out some mistakes aI would say that though the songs are wonderfully written the dialogue is not as "dramatic" as it should be, is not the perfect direction BUT for being his first cinematic (is it well written anyway?) is awesome enough
