A new trailer has been unveiled for Most Beautiful Island and it shows an ugly world where immigrants have to stoop to unthinkable lows to make ends meet. At the centre of this film’s story is a young woman trying to survive in New York, before finding herself embroiled in a twisted game where the participants are never the winners.
The trailer looks dark and mysterious, teasing a horror that is never quite showcased. It’s a wonderfully intriguing set-up that shows the darkness that lurks in the pursuit of the American Dream; an idea that is forever timely and more so now than ever.
Most Beautiful Island has been directed by Asa Asensio who is making her directing debut. She also stars in the lead role as Luciana. Be sure to add Most Beautiful Island to your watch list when it is released on 1st December 2017; it looks like a perfectly cold tale for the wintry months.
