Rosemary MyersGirl Asleep (2015) movie trailer and movie poster star Bethany Whitmore, Harrison Feldman, Matthew Whittet, Eamon Farren, and Tilda Cobham-Hervey. Girl Asleep‘s plot synopsis: “In this vibrant portrayal of Australian adolescence, Greta Driscoll’s bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise 15th 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. Equal measures Wes Anderson and Lewis Carroll, GIRL ASLEEP is an enchanting journey into the absurd – and sometimes scary – depths of the teenage mind.”

More on the plot of the film:

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.

This film looks outrageous in all the right ways. The tucking in moment at the beginning of this trailer is hilarious. When the plot synopsis cites director Wes Anderson as an influence, it is absolutely correct. Like Assassination of a High School President and Afterschool, Girl Asleep looks at adolescence and high school in a different, stirring, and highly entertaining way. Girl Asleep looks like a far sweeter, more endearing film than the former films mentioned.
