Most Beautiful Island

Most Beautiful Island

Directed by Ana Asensio

MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND is a psychological thriller set in the world of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York City. Shot on Super 16mm with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.

An undocumented woman struggling in NYC is offered an opportunity she can’t refuse, but soon discovers she’s involved in a dangerous game.

Cast: Ana Asensio, Natasha Romanova, Nicholas Tucci, Larry Fassenden, Caprice Benedetti

Dang. I've been wanting to watch this for a while, and I'm glad I finally found it here. Heads up - this is a slow-paced, tense movie. I'd maybe call it a mystery/suspense over a horror. If you're looking for physical violence, jump scares, blood/gore... you're not going to find it here. However, this film grabbed and held my attention from the start, and that final scene on the bridge almost made me cry. If you or anyone you've known have had to work odd jobs in a uncaring city - just take that a few steps past "too far" and here we are.
