“Whishaw is on magnetic form as a man pushed to the edge of fragility” – The Telegraph
A mother struggles to come to terms with her son’s identity after his death. When his lover arrives, the pair attempt to overcome their shared grief, despite a language barrier.
Lilting opened the Sundance Film Festival in 2014 to critical acclaim. Starring Ben Whishaw (SkyfallI, The Hollow Crown) and directed by Hong Khaou, the film was shot as part of the microwave scheme in which filmmakers were challenged to produce a film for under £120,000. Lilting was co-produced by SUMS, in partnership with Bob and Co.
