In rural Maine, a bright and magnetic 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 community, Michelle explores love and empowerment outside the limits of "normal" through a provocative sexual awakening, and prides herself on being a kinkster and pansexual. Michelle's joyful story of self-discovery celebrates outcasts everywhere.

“One of the year's most touching documentary films. A provocative and joyous coming of age portrait.”
- The Huffington Post

“A luminous subject with an incredible story. Absolutely seek this film out...There's a wonderful and exciting twist to this magical journey that will, I swear, improve your life if you happen upon it organically.” - Paste Magazine

“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

“'Best and Most Beautiful Things' focuses on the discovery of boundless opportunities in a society designed to suggest otherwise for those facing Smith's plight.” - Indiewire

“[Michelle] is a terrific subject, and Zevgetis has crafted a film that is, much like Michelle herself, a lot more complex than it might initially seem.” - NOW Toronto

A film by Diego Luna

92 minutes, fiction, color, English & Spanish w/ English subtitles, 2016

DVD Features: Optional Spanish subtitles

This Sundance World Premiere follows an old-school pig farmer from California named Ambrose Eubanks (Danny Glover), who, on the brink of losing his family farm, sets off on a road trip with Howard, his beloved and very large pig.

As they make their way across the border to Mexico to find 'Howie' a new home, Ambrose's drinking and deteriorating health begin to take a toll, derailing their plans. His estranged daughter, Eunice (Maya Rudolph), is forced to join them on their adventure. Driven by strong convictions and stubbornness in his old ways, Ambrose attempts to make peace through his devotion to Howie and desire to mend his broken relationships.

Director Diego Luna tackles the old and new in an age of global markets, factory farming, and disposable relationships. Luna's poetic postcard road film, guided by a soundtrack evoking the South and old rock 'n' roll, is lyrically photographed following the gorgeously overgrown, winding roads of Mexico. Luna trusts his audience, letting the story unfold in a bold, un-expository way, allowing tour-de-force performances by Glover, Rudolph, and, of course, Howie the pig. [from Sundance Film Festival]

“Glover plays the part of Eubanks as if it's the story of his life.” - Indiewire

“A bittersweet road movie...unshowy but providing an excellent vehicle for its often underutilized star.” - The Hollywood Reporter
