"A fascinating walk through a mysterious land." The Hollywood Reporter (Full Review)
"The Cannes Directors’ Fortnight has unearthed an absolute gem this year. Andreas Horvath’s Lillian [+] is a road movie across America, which serves up a history lesson on Native Americans, a state-of-the-nation assessment on rural living and an otherworldly thriller with an environmental undertone." Cineuropa (Full Review)
