Most Beautiful Island on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD in February

22 January 2018

Inspired by real life events and shot on Super 16 with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, Most Beautiful Island is a slow-burn psychological thriller chronicling one harrowing day in the life of Luciana (Ana Asensio), a young immigrant woman struggling to escape her past and make ends meet in a new life in New York. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome, unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a twisted and dangerous game.

The first feature written and directed by actor Ana Asensio, who also stars as Luciana, Most Beautiful Island screened at last year's London Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Sutherland Award in the First Feature Competition, and was the winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Award for Narrative Feature at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.
