All the Real Girls

Edition 2003
108' - 2003 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: English
Director: David Gordon Green Composer: David Wingo, Michael Linnen With: Paul Schneider, Zooey Deschanel
All the Real Girls is about the emotional hurricane of a first love. Twenty-two-year-old Paul lives with his beloved mother and works as a grease monkey in a North Carolina mill town. He is an irresistible womanizer, charming and smart. When he meets his best friend's sister, Noel, fresh from boarding school graduation, the two fall in a perfect, real, terrifying love. They share innermost secrets and inhabit a sweet dreamy bubble of mutual admiration and understanding. But soon the perfection is too weighty, the bubble too delicate. Paul is no ideal boyfriend - he had rocky relationships with his family, has a bad history with almost every girl in town, and he can't commit to anything in his life. When Noel goes on a weekend trip away and comes home with devastating news, Paul completely unravels into a flustered, saddened ball of rage... A thrillingly beautiful film.
