God Help The Girl is a musical feature film, written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of the group Belle and Sebastian. It was produced by Barry Mendel and stars Emily Browning, Olly Alexander, and Hannah Murray.
Stuart aspired to tell the story of "a better summer, or at least a summer when something happend. It happened to a boy and a girl and a girl in a city roughtly the same size and population of Glasgow. Perhaps the canals were a bit grimier, the high-rise buildings taller, the streets emptier when you needed them to be, and the beat clubs busier than the ones around here. But on the whole the city was this one."
The music takes center stage and many songs resemble in their musical aspect the other work of Stuart Murdoch and Belle and Sebastian. The film was shot, edited, scored, and mixed in Glasgow and is released theatrically by Amplify Releasing.
