This original British drama shows us life from the perspective of Lily, a fragile but determined young woman with epilepsy. Living alone and working the change counter in a small arcade in the north of England, Lily’s life is quiet and uneventful apart from the frequent fits that often leave her distressed and injured. Unexpected events disrupt Lily’s simple life further, sending her on a confusing and dangerous journey to find her lost brother. Made in collaboration with the Wellcome Trust, the film offers vivid, visual representations of what it is like to experience an epileptic seizure. A measured central performance from Agyness Dean sensitively highlights the difficulties of coping with the condition as an independent adult.
Resentments and secrets cause relationships to implode in this likeable, British coming-of-age tale.
