Storyline

The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can't bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she's flung into a parallel place; a world that's weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous - only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, GIRL ASLEEP is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

Beautiful.
20 January 2016 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

After seeing the Windmill Theatre stage show in 2014, I was definitely hesitant as to how they'd transfer the production to the screen, especially the more dream-like sequences as they worked so well on stage.

I was pleasantly surprised at the faithful retelling of the story, and blown away by the beautiful cinematography. Every shot is composed to perfection with clean lines dominating the first section and skewed lines dominating the dream sequences making for a nice contrast between the two.

Hilarious dance sequences topped off the 70's vibe, with a number of outstanding amateur backup cast.

Although it is different from the original stage production, I think anyone who enjoyed it will love this.
