God Help the Girl, writer/director Stuart Murdoch creates a poignant coming-of-age story that doubles as a sublime indie-pop musical from one of indie pop's biggest songwriters. The project began as a suite of songs, written while Murdoch was between records and tours as lead singer of Belle & Sebastian. He nurtured it for nearly a decade into a fully formed film, set in the bohemian fantasia of Glasgow's West End, which is populated by mods, rockers, and emo kids who have no qualms about breaking into song and dance.

While a treat for the eyes, thanks to the candy-colored cinematography, as well as the ears, thanks to Murdoch's undeniable gift for crafting fantastic pop songs, it's the top-notch cast that delivers the film. Star turns from Emily Browning ("Sleeping Beauty", "Sucker Punch"), Olly Alexander ("Le Week-End", "Bright Star") and Hannah Murray ("Game of Thrones", "Skins") elevate what might have been an exercise in twee to an emotional, heartfelt film that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
