Fifteen is going to turn a corner. It has to.
Critically-acclaimed debut from Australian filmmaker Rosemary Myers, a coming-of-age tale that journeys deep into the teenage mind. Nominated for the Crystal Bear for Best Feature Film (Generation 14+) at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival.... More
"Greta is 14 years old and has just moved to a new town with her family. It’s tough, but at least she's found a soulmate at her new school: Elliott is an outsider like her, he's funny and sweet, maybe a bit childish too, and he wants to be her boyfriend. Her sister has already made it: she lives her own life. It wouldn’t be so bad if her parents hadn't got it into their heads to throw a surprise party for her. Given the choice, Greta would simply run away. In the mysterious forest behind the house lurk strange creatures and Huldra, the fearless warrior. A weird and wonderful coming of age tale, absurd and eerie, terrible yet lovely – just like the life of a 14-year-old when everything around is changing." (Berlin International Film Festival)Hide

Rosemary Myers's début film refuses to stick to the usual formulas; It embraces a certain darkness while remaining benevolent. Comedy, coming-of-age, fantasy, all applied to this quirky and charming Australian flick. Adapted from the stage to the screen it retains a touch of the theatrical in the best way possible and manage to be repeatedly visually surprising.
If you're after something different, GIRL ASLEEP sure is.
