Lilting [Hong Khaou] DVD
Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.
Set in contemporary London, Lilting tells the story of a Cambodian-Chinese mother mourning the untimely death of her son. Her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. 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 whilst they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief.
A delicate and heartfelt drama about memory, love, language and loss, featuring a powerfully compelling central performance from Ben Whishaw.
