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
Saw this movie for the first time a little over a year ago and I still think about that ice cream on the bridge at the end. Good stuff
Big 🍎. Big Dreams
Should’ve been longer!
Slow, but there are a few topless scenes, if you are into that kinda thing. I have too many questions that don't get answered, which I don't appreciate. But if spiders are not your thing, pick something else.
GREAT FILM MUST SEE
