Story


From writer/director Stuart Murdoch (lead singer of beloved indie pop group Belle & Sebastian) comes the most delightfully different musical of the year. Eve (Emily Browning) is a catastrophe-low on self-esteem but high on fantasy, especially when it comes to music. Over the course of one Glasgow summer, she meets two similarly rootless souls: posh Cass (Hannah Murray) and fastidious James (Olly Alexander), and together they decide there's only one thing to do: form a pop group.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the whole phantasmagorical enterprise is so sweetly confident that it just about gets away with its entirely casual approach to believability..”
by Catherine Bray [Time Out London]
“..Murdoch's film is fraught with ambition and aspiration, but a little thin on talent and technique..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]
“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]
