Set in Glasgow, Scotland, the film is about a girl called Eve who is in the hospital dealing with some emotional problems and starts writing songs as a way of getting better. 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
Eve is straggling emotionally, and her only escape is her music. Through that, she'll meet James and Cassie and the three of them will form a band. Maybe I was expecting too much from the movie, and I really can't decide wherever I liked it or not. Mixed feeling aside, the movie has some nice vibe, with songs being smartly featured when they were needed, mainly to describe Eve's feelings. The performances were great too, and that helps the film that comes to a stand steal at some point. The music acts were a little awkward as well as the dance numbers. Eve's character was as open as a book and yet, too closed up to understand her. So I think I should give God help the girl a 4 out of 10.
