Songwriting becomes her way forward, leading her to the City where she meets James and Cassie, two musicians each at crossroads of their own. What follows is a story of renaissance over the course of a long, dream-like Summer. Written by
I really loved this movie. The acting was great, the musical effects were fun but not over the top, and the music itself was fantastic. It is one of the first movie soundtracks i have purchased in years. I was not a huge Belle & Sebastian fan before I saw this - full disclosure I almost saw them on Sept 11 but couldn't face a concert that night and scalped my ticket - but I think this will make me explore more of their music.
If I was 17 I would give this a 10 and see it over and over and talk about it with my friends. It really captures a lot of that late teens early 20s restlessness, relationships and friendships in a really authentic and unpredictable way.
