Editorial Reviews

An 18 year old girl called Joy has gone missing. Another girl called Helen is a few weeks away from leaving her care home. Helen is asked to 'play' Joy in a police reconstruction that will retrace Joy's last known movements. Joy had everything. A loving family, a boyfriend, a bright future. Helen, parentless, has lived in institutions all her life and has never been close to anyone. Gradually Helen begins to immerse herself into the role, visiting the people and places that Joy knew; quietly and carefully insinuating her way into the lost girl's life. But is Helen trying to find out what happened to Joy that day, or is she searching for her own identity? Helen is the debut feature by internationally recognized award-winning directors Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (CIVIC LIFE)

This movie is fantastic. It used to have numerous positive reviews, but they seem to have vanished since the DVD was rereleased.

A teenaged girl named Joy has gone missing on the day before her eighteenth birthday. But this is not a mystery about a missing girl, it is not a police drama, and you will not find not what happened to Joy. Helen is a girl from Joy's class who has led a completely different life from her classmate. She is selected to play Joy in a police re-creation of the day's events.

This film is slow-moving and the camerawork is very peaceful and float-y. If you are not interested in a character study about youth and identity, you probably won't enjoy it, there is practically no action to the whole film. (Also the British accents may be hard to understand for some people.) But this is exactly what I look for in a movie, and I am very much looking forward to the 2013 followup from directors Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (not yet released in the US, unfortunately).

What a stupid movie. You wait the whole movie for it to have a purpose and it just ends with no resolve. I mean, you can let your imagination create the story of course but it was really just lame. A waste of time.

1/4 STAR for being able to film a movie.
I usually get something out of a slow paced independent movie...BUT come on, really. This was like watching a very boring sleep walker.
