Rate this:
In this vibrant portrayal of Australian adolescence, Greta Driscoll's bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise fifteenth birthday party and invite the whole school. Perfectly content being a wallflower, suddenly Greta's flung far from her comfort zone into a distant, parallel place, a strange world that's a little frightening and a lot weird, but only there can she find herself.

Really quirky and FUN! Very different and interesting film from Australia!

Dec 22, 2017

One expects an off-beat quality in an Australian film. "Girl Asleep" was not as off-the-beat as I had hoped. There's a theatrical quality to the staging—it was originally a stage-play—and the fantastic elements don't quite make good use of the jump to film. But the teen-aged characters are pleasing, and the rite of passage story of this Aussie "Heathers" is honestly and frankly told. I could have done without the new text for "Greensleeves," though.
