Lilting - Preview


Preview by Jack Foley

THE opening film of this year’s London LGBT Film Festival, Lilting tells the moving story of a Cambodian-Chinese mother mourning the untimely death of her son.

Her world is disrupted further by the appearance of his ex-partner (Ben Whishaw) and we observe their difficulties in trying to connect with one another without a common language.

Through a translator they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly and realise that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief.

A touching, intimate film about love, loss, communication and culture, Lilting features rousing performances from its leads Ben Whishaw and Cheng Pei Pei and has announced director Hong Khaou as a brave new voice in independent British cinema.

The film is released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, September 29, 2014.
