Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Oh, such a fun and funny film is Girl, Asleep! It’s got lots of Wes Andersonian mega-quirkiness, but derivative it’s not. Shy Greta just started a new school, and now she has to navigate the halls where the Queen Meanie has twin Amazonian henchwomen and her goofball best friend has a crush on her and her mom is determined to make her popular. She yearns to escape into the even more charming-but-creepy world from her childhood music box, but trials and heroes lurk there, and she has to decide: is it time to start growing up?
