God Help The Girl review

A film by Stuart Murdoch, leader of the proudly twee band Belle And Sebastian, was always going to have a big sentimental streak. A musical that’s equally a love letter to indie rock and French cinema (one dance routine comes straight from Bande À Part ), it follows beautiful depressive Eve (Emily Browning) as she breaks out of hospital and finds a sense of belonging with two fellow misfits and future bandmates (Olly Alexander, Hannah Murray).

The cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve.
