From New Zealand, the comedy-drama Millie Lies Low focuses on an anxiety-ridden young lady named Millie, an architecture student from Wellington, New Zealand, who has landed a competitive internship with a prestigious firm in New York. After telling everyone she knows about the opportunity, she suddenly suffers a panic attack as her plane is about to take off, and misses her flight. In a desperate pivot, Millie decides to save face by hiding in plain sight around Wellington, suitcase in tow, using Instagram and the power of denial to depict a trip to New York City that never happened. Trapped in a spiral of hilariously uncomfortable self-inflected scenarios, Millie will have to dig deep to restore her mental health and her dignity.

Praised for capturing “the chaotic self-destruction of Fleabag and the anxious missteps of Eighth Grade,” (FilmDaze), Millie Lies Low is a poignant cringe comedy for our time.

Bonus features: Audio Commentary by director Michelle Savill; bonus short Film, Ellen is Leaving, directed by Michelle Savill.
