Review: God Help The Girl

13 September 2014 1:22 PM, PDT

This is the Pure Movies review of God Help The Girl, directed by Stuart Murdoch, and starring Emily Browning, Olly Alexander, Hannah Murray, Pierre Boulanger, Cora Bisset, Sarah Swire and Mark Radcliffe. Cinematic history is littered with instances of pop stars and musicians trying their hand at acting: usually turning in less than Oscar-winning performances. Examples of them writing for film then working behind the camera are more rare. Nick Cave has had success as a screenwriter, but here, Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch goes one better, writing and directing his surprisingly confident debut feature, God Help The Girl. »

Trailer: Serena

13 September 2014 9:48 AM, PDT

In the North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s, George and Serena Pemberton begin to build a timber empire.

In the North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s, George and Serena Pemberton, love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton’s passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.

Serena is directed by Susanne Bier and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones and Sean Harris. »
