New Clip from God Help The Girl

30 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

God Help the Girl was one of my favorite movies at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Written and directed by Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film follows Eve, who is “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 and fastidious James, and together they form a pop group.” Also, it is an indie-pop musical. But it isn’t twee. Strong performances by Emily Browning, Olly Alexander, and Hannah Murray hold down a whimsical, emotionally resonant coming of age story. Also, the songs are really good.

The clip features the song "The Psychiatrist Is In," and it is from early in the film when Eve and James are just getting to know each other. 

God Help the Girl opens in select theaters and VOD on September 5.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Emily Browning on singing in God Help the Girl, and going cockney for Legend

21 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s safe to say that Australian actress Emily Browning is no stranger to nudity in film, bearing all in the likes of Summer in February, to a brave, somewhat audacious performance in Julia Leigh’s uninhibited drama Sleeping Beauty. Yet for the 25-year-old, she admits that having to sing live in the quaint musical God Help the Girl was by far the more terrifying experience.

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with the talented actress to discuss her latest project – featuring songs from indie pop outfit Belle & Sebastian, having been written and directed by the band’s lead singer Stuart Murdoch, and when asked which she found more nerve-wracking, with little hesitation she replied, “ God Help the Girl for sure, absolutely. I guess you’re protected by your character, so when I did those scenes for Sleeping Beauty, it wasn’t me, especially because that character is »

10 Actors Who Should Be The Next Doctor Who Companion

21 August 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Recently, rumors have been circulating that Jenna Coleman will be leaving Doctor Who at Christmas. Nothing has been confirmed by the BBC, but it seems likely that we’ll be saying goodbye to the young actress in a few short months. Jenna has only been featured on the show for half of one series, but she was also the main companion of the show’s fiftieth anniversary special, and will star in the first series of Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor. When she does leave the show, there will be a huge vacuum to be filled.

But Doctor Who is nothing if not an exercise in learning how to cope with change, and the first thing any fan comes to term with is the fact that everything ends and we need to be ready for it. With the sadness of losing a character we’ve come to care for »

God Help The Girl review

20 August 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Belle & Sebastian musician Stuart Murdoch turns writer and director in the musical drama God Help The Girl. Here's Caroline's review...

God Help The Girl exists because of Belle & Sebastian. The band behind the soundtrack, the writing and the direction (by Stuart Murdoch) infuse every frame with their ethereal folksy charm to the point where it’s impossible to separate the two. This isn’t a film that stands on its own – it is Belle & Sebastian: The Movie – and whether or not your find enjoyment in that depends on both your taste in music and your affinity with the film’s themes and subject matter.

It’s a movie about young people, with all of their self-interest, entitlement and precociousness, but it is also, underneath the predictably twee trappings, a dark dramedy about broken young people. Most of us have been broken young people at some point in our lives, such »

After escaping Eve bunks with James, a romantic idealist who is worn-out by the music scene after being part of a band that fell apart. The two begin a rather coy and intense friendship/flirtation as they then go »

Melbourne 2014 Review: God Help The Girl, A Twee Little Mess

10 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Coming from Belle & Sebastian front-man Stuart Murdoch, God Help The Girl is a directorial debut disaster. The film is stung by lashes of awkward editing, a sloppy screenplay, and a cloying suffocation of artificial, twee characters.Our 'girl' in this modern day tale is Eve (Emily Browning), a patient with mental health issues who takes off on literal flights of fancy. The mundane surroundings of Glasgow become a hipster's paradise of garish fashion and culture altogether consumed by Eve's music-video montage imagination. In her medicated melancholy, she befriends a musician named James (Olly Alexander) and his semi-pupil Cassie (Hannah Murray). Poor James is forever friend-zoned by Eve, and Cassie is the equivalent of a ditzy Barbie doll, lacking most signs of humanity and merely existing as...

Teaser trailer for ‘God Help the Girl’, a musical by Stuart Murdoch of Belle and Sebastian

17 July 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

God Help the Girl is a long-gestating musical film project from Stuart Murdoch, leader of Scottish indie pop group Belle and Sebastian. Having first released an album of the same name in 2009 with the help of various female vocalist collaborators, the first-time screenwriter and director finally got the intended film off the ground thanks to the efforts of Us producer Barry Mendel (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Bridesmaids) and some Kickstarter donations.

Shot and set in Glasgow, Scotland, the film follows the initially hospital-bound Eve (Emily Browning), who takes on songwriting to help her woes, collaborating with musicians James (Olly Alexander) and Cassie (Hannah Murray). Murdoch’s film got fairly positive buzz from its world and European premieres at Sundance and Berlin respectively, winning an award for its ensemble cast at the former festival.

Some early reviews made some very enticing comparisons to the work of both Jacques Demy and Scottish »

Watch: First Trailer For 'God Help The Girl' Directed By Belle & Sebastian Frontman Stuart Murdoch

17 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The musical oeuvre of Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch has been one of detailed songs about people on the fringes, with an observant eye on the tiny details that make up the bigger picture. And the musician brings that background to his debut feature film as a director with "God Help The Girl," and after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it's now ready to start rolling into cinemas. Starring Emily Browning, Hannah Murray, and Olly Alexander, and based on the album of the same name by Murdoch, the story is pretty straightforward, taking the place over one Glasgow summer when three young people come together to form a band. And you can see in the first trailer the result is something that is definitely the visual equivalent of Murdoch's music, pretty, a bit twee, but definitely his voice all around. "God Help The Girl" opens in the UK on August 16th, »

Emily Browning Stars in Stuart Murdoch's 'God Help the Girl' Trailer

17 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

"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 »

Listen: Emily Browning And More Sing Title Track From 'God Help The Girl' Plus Full Soundtrack Details

16 July 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Already one of music's finest storytellers, Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch's move into directing with "God Help The Girl" made natural sense. That it was a musical, also made sense. Unfortunately, the resulting film got a mixed reception at Sundance (our review), but there's always the music. "God Help The Girl" finds the cast of Emily Browning, Olly Alexander and Hannah Murray doing the songs from Murdoch's 2009 album of the same, with three new tunes in the mix as well: "Pretty When the Wind Blows," "I Dumped You First," and "I'm Not Rich." And you can get a flavor of it with the title track sung by Browning and co. and yeah, it's totally Murdoch-esque and if you're been a fan of Belle and Sebastian, this will be right up your alley of twee (but not overly so) pop. "God Help The Girl" opens in the UK on August 16th, »

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Murray on Gilly’s Hiding Skills, Mutton Legs, and Going Off-Book

10 June 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spoilers concerning the most recent episode of Game of Thrones will follow. So turn back now if you have not seen this past Sunday’s “The Watchers on the Wall,” although you should totally know the drill by now.Ygritte dying in Jon Snow’s arms was not the only romantic moment during the battle at Castle Black. Sam and Gilly, two characters who clearly care about each other, finally kiss, offering a bit of hope amid all that slaughter. By Game of Thrones standards, it was pretty chaste, but it signifies a new direction for both of them, especially since Sam has figured out a convenient loophole in the Night’s Watch vows. Hannah Murray chatted with Vulture about what Gilly did during the siege, the moment with Sam, and how to use a mutton leg as a weapon. Here we have a huge battle scene, and once again »

Game of Thrones Season Four – Episode 9 Review

10 June 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the ninth episode of Game of Thrones Season Four….

The Watchers on the Wall.

Directed by Neil Marshall.

Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

The usual format of these Game of Thrones reviews – a by-character breakdown, emulating the chapter perspectives of George R. R. Martin’s books – falters this week. For the first time since Season 2′s ‘Blackwater,’ this episode focuses entirely on a single storyline: the vast, yet undisciplined, Wildling army attacking the fortified, but few, Night’s Watch.

Episode 9 has a rich history in Game of Thrones’ plotting. Season 1′s saw the be-ned-ing of Eddard Stark; season 2 staged the aforementioned Battle of Blackwater Bay; and, most recently, season 3 cordially invited all to its Red Wedding. But perhaps after Joffrey’s death in episode 2 and Prince Oberyn’s ocular obliteration last week, ‘Episode 9′ was no longer the series’ determined highlight. Nope. It seems Benioff »

“Game of Thrones” 4.09: Castle Blackwater

9 June 2014 7:26 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Much like in Season 2, Game of Thrones staged a massive standalone battle in its penultimate episode. It was bloody, brutal, and a heck of a lot of fun. Let’s dig in!

Nice touch – for what might be the first time ever, the opening titles only list the people that Actually appear in this episode, making for the shortest cast list ever. Take the night off, Dinklage!

Jon (Kit Harington) and Sam (John Bradley) are on night shift at the Night’s Watch. Sam wants to know what it’s like to go to the bone zone, but Jon remains coy. Sam also points out that their vows don’t actually explicitly prohibit a lot of things. (Like butt stuff?) Jon finally opens up a little: “For a little while, you’re more than just you.” Ugh. Emo has finally made it to Westeros.

Jon sends Sam to get some sleep, »

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: The Night's Watch Defends The Wall Against The Wildlings; Ygritte Dies

8 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Game of Thrones' penultimate episode of season four, “Watchers on the Wall,” began with Sam (John Bradley) asking Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) about Ygritte (Rose Leslie), who would be charging towards them with the Wildlings before they know it. Sam wants to know what it’s like to love another person – both emotionally and physically. Jon struggles to explain being wrapped up in someone else before the two men of the Night’s Watch get back to business. Jon is taking first watch atop the Wall.

Game Of Thrones Recap

Ygritte, not far from Castle Black, sharpens the arrows she’s preparing to launch into the "Crows." She’s bitter and eager to hunt down the people who took their land. One of her Thenn comrades questions whether or not she has what it takes to finish Jon Snow. Ygritte warns that if any of them try to kill »

“Game of Thrones” Recap: Sansa’s Working Overtime

2 June 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Okay, well… that… sucked.

As a refresher: Two weeks ago, when we last left King’s Landing, we saw this:

This week we saw the death of a much beloved character (who had very little to do other than simply be awesome, let’s agree) and a lot of talking. Grumblegrumble. Let’s dig in?

A drunken bar wench is leading a round of “Name That Belch”, and most of the songs are names of previous episodes like “The Rains of Castamere” and “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”. Well, beats Coldplay. She tells a guy that he’s “got a hangnail for a cock,” which is such a wonderfully vile insult that I can forgive her pitchy burps. She then goes and talks to Gilly (Hannah Murray), so I take it back. Ugh.

Turns out wenchie is upset that Gilly’s baby (Samlet?) is keeping her up at night, »
