Twenty-two-year-old Paul lives with his mother and works as a mechanic in a sleepy North Carolina mill town. Charming, smart, and unambitious, he has a devoted circle of rowdy friends and a reputation as a callous heartbreaker. When he meets his best friend's sister Noel, fresh from boarding school graduation, the two fall into a perfect, real, but terrifying love.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Undisciplined, unfocused, overimprovised and unevenly acted."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The characters in All the Real Girls can seem a little thin ... but the emotions always feel genuine."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"A poetic, powerful work."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Captures the almost narcotic sensation of new love..."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Zooey Deschanel, in her first starring role, barely saves this film from the murky bogs of independent dreck."
‑ Marcy Dermansky,
"A wise, delicate and immensely touching romance."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"There's something missing from this slowly paced story of young love, like a painting that's still waiting for its subject to be dropped in."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"All Gordon Green can manage are...dreamy images, blunt-edged characters and dialogue, splattered like so-much Cheese Whiz over a shapeless mess of a pseudo-poetic narrative."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"Obriga o público a passar duas horas ao lado de pessoas absolutamente desinteressantes."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
""All the Real Girls" captures young love as well as any movie ever has."
‑ Mark Robison, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Much of the film, which so much wants to seem natural and unforced, comes off as contrived and slightly precious."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"A love story for those who cannot tolerate the phoniness of Hollywood romance movies, one that deftly avoids melodrama and manipulation in favor of raw emotion."
‑ Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News
"Love can be a good thing. It can just as easily be horrible. David Gordon Green's poetic All the Real Girls captures both senses of love - and beautifully to boot."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"The performances are convincing, and sufficiently nuanced to elevate the characters beyond mere cliché."
‑ Anton Bitel, Movie Gazette
"Its sensibility is almost anachronistic; I'm not sure there's a cynical moment in its 108-minute running time."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
