Ana Asensio’s feature debut chronicles one bizarre and ultimately harrowing day in the life of Luciana, an undocumented Spanish immigrant struggling to make ends meet in New York City. When a friend offers Luciana (director Asensio) an opportunity to make an easy $2,000, she readily accepts. But, of course, nothing is as simple as it seems and the young woman inadvertently becomes a participant in a cruel game where people are twisted and broken for perverse thrills. Shot on Super 16 film stock for a gritty visual aesthetic, Most Beautiful Island is both a sobering drama and a psychological thriller.
