Off a dirt road in rural Maine, a precocious 20-year-old woman named Michelle Smith lives with her mother Julie. Michelle is quirky and charming, legally blind and diagnosed on the autism spectrum, with big dreams and varied passions. Searching for connection, Michelle explores love and empowerment outside the limits of "normal" through a provocative sex-positive community. Michelle's joyful story of self-discovery celebrates outcasts everywhere.

“The term 'disability' suggests a fraught relationship between the person it describes and the objects and institutions through which he or she must navigate. Is there a way to think of this as something other than loss, diminishment, a newly small world? Garrett Zevgetis’s new documentary, 'Best and Most Beautiful Things,' tackles this question with sensitivity and verve.” - The New Yorker

“Touching on sexuality, self-realization, and a support system that encourages empowerment, 'Best and Most Beautiful' Things nails the idea that 'normal' is very overrated.” - The Austin Chronicle
