Movie Info

As Lily finishes treatment for breast cancer, she focuses on life with newfound clarity. Wandering atmospheric New York City streets, she reevaluates her relationship with her older boyfriend and her feelings about her long-absent father. The film lingers on charged moments during this vulnerable period to deliver an intimate and heartfelt portrait. Loosely based on the experiences of co-writer and lead actress Amy Grantham, Lily is a mature, stylish character piece reminiscent of classic French New Wave cinema.(C) BOND/360

Critic Reviews for Lily

All Critics (5)

Its examinations, while not brazenly profound, are innately moving and compelling, and the film features a subtle, beautifully rendered lead performance.

It's a nifty narrative feat of chronology that comes off naturally as does nearly every other aspect of "Lily," a film that captures the elusive feeling of uncertainty when there's no such element present in its storytelling.

Observant, quiet and authentic.

February 25, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

An engaging and watchable indie US drama, Lily is especially distinctive due to Amy Grantham's often mesmeric performance as a young woman nearing the end of her treatment for breast cancer.

With Grantham as the star, supplying an award-worthy, brave performance, the film is about a happy person regaining her happiness. Lily is discovering that the segments of her life will never fit together again, but what the hell?
