    “A moment of perfection.”

  • Xan Brook Jan 27, 2014

    "A small dab of magic...I inexplicably found myself welling up."

  • Don Simpson Jan 26, 2014

    “As close to brilliant as humanly possible...pure, unadulterated eye and ear candy.”

  • Esther Merono Jan 23, 2014

    “The most stylish movie you’ll see at Sundance this year.”

  • Steven Zeitchick Jan 19, 2014

    “Refreshingly unconventional...has that bouncy-but-bittersweet quality common to "High Fidelity" and other good movies about modern music.”

  • Kenneth Turan Jan 27, 2014

    "God Help the Girl" is a classic movie musical where people burst into songs of crystal purity whenever something is on their minds…a lively, playful, completely charming film”

  • Alice Hubley Aug 16, 2014

    “A film that has the potential to make you laugh, cry, think and sing”

  • David Ehrlich Aug 18, 2014

    "GOD HELP THE GIRL is such a perfect pick-me-up that I can’t wait to own for future Sunday nights, whatever night of the week they may occur."

  • Harry Campbell Sep 4, 2014

    "God Help The Girl is destined to become a much loved cult music film shared between young loves like a treasured album."

  • Kenneth Turan Sep 5, 2014

    "It's a film that believes in the nurturing centrality of friendship and insists that the writing and playing of pop songs can free people to be their best selves, that music can well and truly save your life....No one comes out and says that music is the language of the soul, but no one has to. We see it happening right before our eyes."

  • Bruce Handy Sep 5, 2014

    "If Quentin Tarantino had grown up reading Salinger and watching Jacques Demy movies instead of gorging on blaxploitation, grind house, and chop-socky, he might have created something like God Help the Girl, which, to my surprise, delighted and moved me."

  • Steven Rea Sep 9, 2014

    "That's often the way with first-time directors - they are so nervous about being unprepared that they actually are always the best prepared."

  • Philebrity Staff Sep 15, 2014

    "The movie bops around all kinds of modern conundrums — depression, courtship, ambition — with style and grace, and an unflinching poise that you wouldn’t really expect."

  • Elisabeth Donnelly Sep 16, 2014

    "Browning has a lovely voice and some indefinable, evanescent charisma, and she gives writer/director Stuart Murdoch’s witty, ’60s-style girl-group songs humor and melancholy in equal measures."
