Storyline

The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can't bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she's flung into a parallel place; a world that's weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous - only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, GIRL ASLEEP is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

Engaging Film that took me on an adventure
16 September 2016 | by Angela CoopSee all my reviews

A interesting, fun, awkward teen adventure that will take you on on adventure. Must see film for anyone who never quite fit in.

It has quirkiness, 1970s throw back, girl drama and most importantly dad jokes. Gretel and Elliott will have you cheering from your seats that is OK to just be yourself.

The film is perfectly pitched for teenagers or for anyone who was slightly left of field in high school. So just about everyone!

Great to see Australian Films making its mark up with the big budget releases.

I hope to see more of Whittet's plays adapted to the big screen.
