“Girl Shaped Love Drug is a film that explores how coincidence brings two strangers together. But it is so much more than a gritty, urban fairytale. Simon Powell has created a quiet and tender love story that exposes the brutal scars of its characters as they fall victim to reality.” — Gabriella Swerling
