About a Girl Reviews:

This is a movie that really makes you think about our culture and our society today.We learn about the life of the Woman as she talks about her hopes, dreams and experiences.Nothing will prepare you for the very shocking ending. It really is like a slap in the face! Or a wake up call...An perfect piece of writing, directing and acting.


Shocking short-film about a young woman who's the product of a broken home and hopeless dreams of being a pop star. Her dad is unemployed and spends his time testing soccer while her mom struggles to create end meet. One striking detail of this movie was the contrast by the girl's totally Americanized rendering of the pop lyrics she sings and the thick Liverpool accent that she uses in daily speech. (It needed me to place on subtitles to understand what was being said)As sad as the life that she describes is, I was still fully unprepared for the ending.


A working class women sings Brittany with her mates and talks excitedly about her life as she walks along the canal. However her storyline tips at hurts that go deeper than her talk suggest.This short won the 2001 Bafta for greatest short movie and was director Percival's first movie after many years in commercials. The movie begins with a well framed shot of the woman singing and dancing to a Brittany Spears song before going straight into a montage of her talking, hanging out with her Dad, on a bus with her mates etc. As it goes this is entertaining enough and quite interesting. The only weakness of it is that it feels like mix of two Quick Present characters – the `Brilliant' guy and the teenage girl.However this is a minor complaint as the ending reveals the meaning behind much of her talk and the scenes we see. This really needs to be seen twice or followed by some thought to appreciate the significance of what has gone before the ending.Thewlis is excellent. Managing to keep the screen well and be fully believable in the role. To one who is annoyed by loud teenagers singing pop songs on buses she did well to victory me over.Overall this is not an simple movie to think about and does have a stage that many folks will search upsetting (if only temporarily). While it feels aimless for most of your first viewing, a nice performance by Thewlis is more than enough to keep the attention.
