Electricity tells the story of Lily, whose epilepsy means she's used to seeing the world in terms of angles – you look at every surface, you weigh up every corner, and you think of your head slamming into it – but what would she be like without her sharp edges? Prickly, spiky, up-front honest and down-to-earth practical, Lily is thirty, and life's not easy but she gets by. Needing no-one and asking for nothing, it's just her and her epilepsy: her constant companion.
But then her mother – who Lily's not seen for years – dies, and Lily is drawn back into a world she thought she'd long since left behind. Forced to renegotiate the boundaries of her life, she realises she has a lot to learn – about relationships, about the past, and about herself – and some difficult decisions ahead of her.
The screenplay, starring Agyness Deyn as Lily, is adapted from Ray Robinson's novel that we first published in 2006.
Empire Online said, 'it’s hugely refreshing to come across a film as inventive and interesting as Electricity' and Britflicks.com called it 'an unusual, beautiful, stunning, exciting thrill ride'.
