The Unexpected, Magical story of ‘I Met a Girl’

You don’t need Hollywood or New York City to make an amazing movie.

You need a compelling story, a vibrant vision from the directorial team, and a cast who can really sell the story. That’s what you’ll find in Luke Eve’s I Met a Girl.

Starring Brenton Thwaites, Joel Jackson, and Lily Sullivan, I Met a Girl takes you on a magical cross-country road trip all in the search for love.

Thwaites shines in this film, playing a man with schizophrenia named Devon. When I interviewed Thwaites in April 2021, he told me he met with mental health groups about how to play a man with schizophrenia well, and respectfully.

You can view that interview here.

In this film, you follow Devon through a journey filled with hallucinations, heartbreak, and heartwarming moments.

I watched the movie on Amazon Prime Video (twice) when it first came out. Now it is available to rent or buy on the streaming service, and last I heard it was available to stream on Netflix in the UK.

After votes were compiled for the film on IMDB, I Met a Girl was given a 6/10.

But I’d have to agree with the viewers on Amazon Prime Video and give it a 4.5/5.0 or a 9/10. Give it a try! It might not be your mainstream Marvel film or the latest hit comedy, but I’d bet that you’ll come away from the movie feeling like you watched something meaningful.
