A Live Broadcast Satellite Screening of the UK Premiere of God Help The Girl: Belle & Sebastian
Sundance Award-winning musical feature film GOD HELP THE GIRL, in partnership with Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF), will premiere live in UK cinemas via satellite on Saturday 16 August from Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange with the cast and Stuart Murdoch in attendance. Following the film’s screening, Belle & Sebastian will be live on stage playing their own songs and songs from the film (with the 'God Help The Girl' singers). The film will be released nationwide on 22 August through Metrodome Distribution.
GOD HELP THE GIRL is a coming of age tale set in Glasgow over the course of one hazy summer. Written, directed and with original songs by Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of the group Belle and Sebastian, GOD HELP THE GIRL is a story of a young girls problems entering adult life, uniquely told through a soundtrack of indie pop. GOD HELP THE GIRL stars Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Magic Magic), Olly Alexander (Great Expectations and forth coming The Riot Club) and Hannah Murray (Skins, Game of Thrones) and was produced by twice Oscar-nominated producer Barry Mendel (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums). The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2014 and was awarded a special jury prize at the festival.
Scottish outfit who delight in keeping their profile low and their dedication to the music high. Their Nick Drake inspired acoustic pop has a beautiful subtle sound underpinned by a sharp lyrical and musical backbone. Tuneful pop has rarely been this fulfilling.
