    • Synopsis
    • ELECTRICITY is an astonishing journey seen through the eyes of a young woman whose epilepsy brings extraordinary hallucinations as she searches for her lost brother.

      Lilly O’Connor (Deyn) – brash, sexy, witty – lives on the Northeast coast away from the world and her past. But when her mother dies, the past draws Lily back in. When she discovers that her younger brother Mikey (Cooke), the only one who looked after her when they were kids, disappeared to London years ago, she resolves to try and find him. But the search could kill her. Lily’s epilepsy brings vivid visual distortions, strange auras and terrifying visions that we experience through her eyes. ELECTRICITY takes us on a journey that brings Lily to the brink of death before triumph in a beautiful and uplifting story of self-discovery and the human spirit. Based on the novel by Ray Robinson that the Guardian called ‘’a breath-taking assault on the senses’’, ELECTRICITY combines passionate drama with stunning special effects in a powerfully uplifting love story with a fearless breakthrough performance by AGYNESS DEYN.

      The cast of leading British talent includes CHRISTIAN COOKE (Cemetery Junction). PAUL ANDERSON (Heart of the Sea), ALICE LOWE (Sightseers), LENORA CRITCHLOW and TOM GEORGESON (Notes on a Scandal). Directed by BAFTA-Nominee Bryn Higgins, adapted by BAFTA-winning writer Joe Fisher and with a stunning score by BAFTA-winner John Lunn, ELECTRICITY is a Stone City Films production.
