“[LILYA 4-EVER] is going to ruin you.”
—Zola Jesus

“A live wire stripped of insulation … the sparks engulf everything in its path.”
The New York Times

“This film will gut you” is a line reserved for many but deserved by few and none more so than this tear-inducing hellscape of glitter eyeshadow, techno, and devastation from Lukas Moodysson (TOGETHER) who levels the soul with this disturbingly true tale of a teenage girl (Oksana Akinshina) whose doomed attempt at escape sends her into the arms of the nearest shady character and out into an ignominious world.
