Lila Says

Doueiri, Ziad
In this coming of age drama, Chimo, a promising college student with a writing scholarship, neglects his studies in favor of killing time with his friend Mouloud on the streets of Marseilles. He soon finds himself infatuated with Lila, a precocious and sexually experienced 16-year-old who moves into the neighborhood. Their spending time together inspires concern from Lila's aunt and jealousy from Mouloud. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema - Dramatic at the Sundance Film Festival. Winner of Best Actor (Moa Khouas) and Best Screenplay and Nominated for Best Feature at the Gijón International Film Festival. "Induces a rare kind of cinematic immersion and nervous intimacy, thanks to its deft treatment of sexual confusion and awakening." - Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International "...Succeeds in conveying the real- life risks that disgruntled teens will take to prove they're more powerful, more sexy and more in control than they really are." - Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
