God Help the Girl
Fans of Belle & Sebastian will love this charming tale which follows our main girl Eve as she deals with life while battling an eating disorder. After meeting a new group of friends, they slowly start to form a band.

They Came Together
Sigh, our Amy Poehler obsession is still going strong! This quirky spoof comedy is all you need to beat those January blues; it tells the (very silly!) story of how Amy’s character met her man, Joel – played by the very loveable Paul Rudd.
It’s hilarious, completely ridiculous and features appearances from Ed Helms and Ellie Kemper – what more do you need?
