See Girl Run- SXSW World Premiere

The world premiere of See Girl Run was shown this afternoon at the Stateside Theater in Austin, TX at the SXSW film festival. This hilarious film features Robin Tunney (Prison Break, The Craft), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), and Josh Hamilton (J. Edgar). Robin Tunney and William Sadler (Fringe and Hawaii Five-O) who plays her father both attended the premiere.

The story follows Robin Tunney as she struggles to come to terms with her life as a married woman and her continuing curiosity in her high school boyfriend who she "never broke up with". She disappears one day to head back to her home town and stalk her high school boyfriend to determine whether or not she would be happier with him than her current husband. She stays with her mom and dad who seem to be examples of her dismal, boring, and unhappy future with her current husband and her alcoholic, seriously depressed brother. Nothing like a screwed up family to put your rich girl problems in perspective.

This movie is the type of comedy that is reminiscent of the classic Garden State. Its funny, but not in a hilarious way. There are funny moments mixed with touching moments. Its a coming of age story, just a little late! I really felt that this film was similar to Garden State and was a great film. The only complaint I have is the sound track really. I feel like Garden State was not only a great movie, but was supported by an amazing sound track. This sound track had a few decent songs, but I feel like better music could have been chosen. If the movie does get picked up by a studio (and I really hope it does), I would suggest spending some money on music and getting some songs that help move a long the film and enhance the story.

I really do hope this film gets picked up. I think it would be very successful. I give the film a 4 out of 5 stars and would suggest if this hits theaters to go see it.

The included picture was of the Q&A after the film with Robin Tunney and director Nate Meyer. The film does not currently have a one-sheet or any screen shots available.


  1. Hi! Thank you for the review! :)
    Is it possible to have a little summarize of what was said during the Q&A? That would be very much appreciated, if you can of course!
    Thank you! :)

  2. We actually didn't stay for the Q&A. It was a hectic day running from theater to theater. I know that Robin Tunney and the director were up there when we left. We saw William Sadler standing in the wing, but he hadn't moved up on stage yet. The only question we heard was to Robin about her thoughts of such a drastic change from the typical comedy where the man cheats on the woman and starts to wander and wonder "what if". Robin loved the script when she received it and thought this could be fun to turn this around and approach it from the woman's point of view.
    Sorry I don't have more. There have been a few Q&A's we have stuck around for but not many. I hope you get a chance to see this movie!

  3. No problem at all, and thank you so much for the answer! :)

    I really hope too, hopefully it will get picked up, sounds really interesting, and I wouldn't want to miss it!

    Thanks again.
