The United Kingdom is known for its nostalgia of royalty. It's also known for its comedy as well. In "Girly", it's a dark comedy that is really grim, but very funny as well.
Vanessa Howard is Girly, a nubile girl in a role playing "family" along with Mumsy, Sonny, and Nanny. The family is wealthy, fatherless, and have the knack to obey the rules given out. Sonny and Girly go out and about and would find out new friends to be in the family. They would find bums and hippies to be in this grim game being played by them. Those who don't abide by the rules will be sent to the angels. One night, they picked up a male prostitute and his female client from a swingers party. They played games, the children speak out nursery rhymes, and on the playground, they would kill the female client. And after the man sobers up, he's part of the twisted game he would have to play.
Lots of rhymes and sexual overtones in this film. Very quaint as well. I don't why this movie didn't do well in their country. I think that it's a bloody hit.
