(aka "Fair Fight")
LILLY is my passion project. A dramatic feature film based on the remarkable life of Lilly Ledbetter, the woman about whom President Obama named his first piece of legislation - The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act. Lilly was an Alabama Goodyear tire factory worker who discovered that the company paid her half of what her male counterparts earned - after twenty years. A political drama, Lilly's struggles begin with sexual harrassments that morph into David & Goliath legal and moral battles. LILLY captures the zeitgeist of today as women all over the world speak out against patriarchal systems of oppressions and inequity. This is the story of one woman who single-handedly changed an American law. LILLY has been honored with The Ravenal Directing Grant and is an Athena/Black List winner. Marc Platt is producing.
