Oksana Akinshina is Lilja, a 16-year-old Estonian urchin with no family, no assets besides her looks, and only one friend, an even younger boy (Artyom Bogucharsky) with his own problems. When a smooth guy (Pavel Ponomaryov) promises to help her escape to Sweden and start a new life, she jumps at the opportunity. If you're thinking, "This sounds like a recipe for sexual slavery and indentured debauchery," you'd be right. "Heartbreaking...For all its explicitness...Lilya 4-Ever never feels exploitative" (New York Times). Nominated for two European Film Awards. In Russian, Swedish, and English with English subtitles.

Lukas Moodysson---Sweden---2002---109 mins.
