About Glasgow Film Festival Closing Gala: How To Build A Girl

We are thrilled to conclude the 2020 Glasgow Film Festival with the UK premiere of How to Build a Girl on Sunday 8 March.

The big screen version of Caitlin Moran’s cherished, semi-autobiographical bestseller is a hilarious, inspirational coming-of-age comedy that is set to be the homegrown crowd-pleaser of the year.

Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) shines as Johanna Morrigan, a 16-year-old extrovert from the outskirts of Wolverhampton with raging hormones, an unstoppable imagination and gigantic dreams. Her bedroom is adorned with posters of her heroes such as Jo March, Cleopatra, Sylvia Plath and others, who come to life and provide the closest thing to friendship that she has. Yearning to make a name for herself, she answers an ad seeking “hip young gunslinger” journalists for a cool London music magazine. She is accepted, reinvents herself as Queen of Mean rock critic Dolly Wilde and heads to the big city. But as her critical savagery brings her greater and greater success, the lines between Johanna Morrigan and Dolly Wilde begin to haze. She has certainly figured out how to build a girl but is this the girl that she wanted to be? Penned by Moran with her trademark humour, Coky Giedroyc (Stella Does Tricks, Harlots) directs a wise and witty delight with a terrific cast that includes Paddy Considine, Alfie Allen, Chris O’Dowd, Emma Thompson, Sarah Solemani, Frank Dilane, Laurie Kynaston and Arinze Kene plus fantastical cameos from Sharon Horgan, Lily Allen, Jameela Jamil, Lucy Punch, Alexei Sayle, Michael Sheen, Sue Perkins, Mel Giedroyc and Gemma Arterton.

Tickets for Opening and Closing Galas go on sale at 12 noon on Monday 13 January from glasgowfilm.org/festival and GFT Box Office (0141 332 6535).

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Film Festival Closing Gala: How To Build A Girl are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
