Lily
dir. Matt Creed / USA 2013 / 85’

Cast

Amy Grantham, Simon Chaput, Lindsay Burdge, Benjamin Slater, Zachary Unger

Film description

Reminiscent of John Cassavetes and the French NewWave, Lily exudes the same unconventional charm captured in inconspicuous moments, with loose narration that often flies off into the wild blue yonder.  Lily (the fabulous Amy Grantham) is finishing chemotherapy.  She wanders the streets of New York, recording sounds in an attempt to find her place in a new world without illness as its epicenter. She wants to make up the time others have used to build relationships and careers. Grantham, who radiates warmth and humor, also co-authored the script, which is loosely based on her personal experience of fighting cancer. IndieWire notes ‘Lily is a New York movie through and through… Creed and Grantham perfectly capture the vibe of a city that seems alive and vital.’
