‘Ford v Ferrari’ actor Josh Lucas will star opposite Oscar nominee Patricia Clarkson in ‘Lilly’, a political thriller directed by Rachel Feldman. The film is based on the life of Lilly Ledbetter, the Alabama woman for whom former President Barack Obama named his first piece of legislation — The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act of 2009.
Also starring Thomas Sadoski, ‘Lilly’ explores the psychological cost of putting one’s life on the line for justice.
The love story of Lilly (Clarkson) and her husband Charles (Lucas) is the beating heart of the social justice drama.
Sadoski plays Jon Goldfarb, the Birmingham civil rights attorney who navigated Ledbetter’s legal battles.
Feldman is directing from a script she wrote with Adam Prince. Production is expected to begin in Georgia in October.
