Millie Lies Low

1h 40m Comedy, Drama 2021

Anxiety-ridden Millie is on her way from Wellington to New York for an internship at a prestigious architecture firm when a moment of panic causes her to miss her flight. She doesn’t have the money for another ticket, and a deep sense of shame prevents her from fessing up to her friends and family.

So instead she lies low in her hometown in order to scrounge for another ticket, while using her wits and Instagram to convince her friends, boyfriend, mum, and the world at large, that she’s successfully living the dream in NYC. With her options running out she resorts to increasingly desperate schemes as her hastily constructed facade begins to crumble.

“An ingenious satire of career-faking on social media.” ~Phil Hoad, The Guardian

“A work of real humanism, an Agnes Varda portrait of anxiety. I can’t wait to see what Savill does next.” ~Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
