"Lily" is an atmospheric and suspenseful tale of love, loss, and obsession. A successful young man, haunted by the death of someone close to him, is lured into a Faustian business arrangement with a mysterious stranger. Desperate for salvation, he must strictly adhere to a bizarre set of terms that will test the very fabric of reality, and may carry with them the ultimate price. At its core, this piece examines the sacrifice that all true desire carries with it, and how far people are sometimes willing to journey from themselves in order to find peace. Written by
When I first sat down to watch Lily, I fully expected that the next 30 minutes of my time would be taken up by a simple cut and dry short film. Pressing play however, my eyes narrowed slightly, and I suddenly realized that this wasn't just any short film. This film demanded your full attention, and it got mine right from the beginning. It was nothing short of AMAZING! Daniel Boneville not only captivated me with the aesthetics of the film, but also with his unique talent for telling a story. After viewing this masterpiece, there isn't a doubt in my mind that this is only the beginning for this gifted young director. I truly look forward to his future endeavors.
