As a Belle and Sebastian head, I knew I had to watch this movie at some point.

I've been a fan of Murdoch's work with Belle and Sebastian for years. This film was disappointing though. I wouldn't mind if he kept to music.

What a lovely and adorable story and cozy soulful film. The freedom and confinements of youth and finding one's self are beautifully written and portrayed.

I watched out of curiosity (1) lead actress/American Gods (2) Glasgow's music scene. But I found myself getting bored. Has its own lil charm tho.

The movie was a bit lame because there wasn't much going on and the songs Eve (the main character) was singing were just describing her daily routine. She was making songs of how she woke up in the morning or how she ended ...Read more
