God Help The Girl

The unique thing about all-female pop groups is once a month they transform into aggressive punk bands.

Fortunately, the group in this musical has a male member to balance the hormones.

With aspirations of becoming a musician, Eve (Emily Browning) escapes the hospital where she is being treated for anorexia and heads to Glasgow.

At a show she encounters a guitar player, James (Olly Alexander), with equal aspirations.

With James' guitar student Cassie (Hannah Murray) rounding out the band, the trio start writing songs for an upcoming show.

But Eve's desire to get a proper education threatens to end the band before it begins.

Conceived by Belle and Sebastian front man Stuart Murdoch, God Help the Girl drips with the indie band's lovelorn melodies and hipster aesthetic; however, what it lacks is a compelling story that addresses Eve's eating disorder.

Besides, bands are more successful when assembled by record company executives.
