Nobody Has to Know

  Bouli Lanners

  France, Belgium, United Kingdom     99 minutes


On a wind-swept Scottish isle, weather-worn Belgian farmhand Phil (writer-director Bouli Lanners) suffers a stroke, losing all memories of his past. Shy but resourceful, Millie (Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley) comes to his rescue, serving as keeper of his health and of his memories. She soon reveals their shared secret—the two are clandestinely in love. As she reconstructs their memories and life together for him, it becomes clear that all might not be as it seems (or as she says). Lanners and Fairley shine in this powerfully understated romantic drama about the deep connection between memory and longing.
