The musical oeuvre of Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch has been one of detailed songs about people on the fringes, with an observant eye on the tiny details that make up the bigger picture. And musician brings that background to his debut feature film as a director with "God Help The Girl," and after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it's now ready to start rolling into cinemas.

God Help The Girl

The musical oeuvre of Belle & Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch has been one of detailed songs about people on the fringes, with an observant eye on the tiny details that make up the bigger picture. And the musician brings that background to his debut feature film as a director with "God Help The Girl," and after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it's now ready to start rolling into cinemas.

Starring Emily Browning, Hannah Murray, and Olly Alexander, and based on the album of the same name by Murdoch, the story is pretty straightforward, taking the place over one Glasgow summer when three young people come together to form a band. And you can see in the first trailer the result is something that is definitely the visual equivalent of Murdoch's music, pretty, a bit twee, but definitely his voice all around.

"God Help The Girl" opens in the UK on August 16th, and in the US on September 5th. [I Watch Stuff]
