Lilies


A Canadian film which takes a look at an unusual gay romance set in the early part of the century. A prisoner demands to confess a crime to a bishop, and when the priest arrives, he gets more than he bargained for. Instead of hearing a confession, he instead is forced to watch a play which describes events which happened in his youth, leading to him giving a confession instead.
A film for people interested in film as art - the action junkies will hate it, as will people offended by gay material. Reviews have been very mixed.
