"EMOTIONALLY RAW. POWERFUL, HAUNTING, AND DEEPLY PERSONAL. ABIGAIL SPENCER... DOES REVELATORY WORK THAT MAKES ROMY INTO A COMPLICATED, BELIEVABLE WOMAN. COLLETTE WOLFE AND (PARTICULARLY) CHEYENNE JACKSON SHINE. DIRECTOR DANIELA AMAVIA... SHOWS A VISUAL SENSE AND A GRIP OF PERFORMANCES THAT BLOW MANY OTHER FIRST-TIME FILMMAKERS OUT OF THE WATER. AMAVIA AND SPENCER LEAD THE WAY IN CREATING A SAD, HUMAN, AND ILLUMINATING FILM."
- AIN'T IT COOL NEWS


"BLACK SWAN MEETS THE BIG CHILL... REGRETFUL ROMANTIC OVERLAPPING, MOMENTS OF PIVOTAL MATURATION, AND COMIC RELIEF... LYRICAL AND MOVING, THE EVENING'S FLASHBACKS BUILD TO A POWERFUL CONCLUSION."
- THE HUFFINGTON POST


"7 OUT OF 10. COMPELLING... THE CORE EMOTIONS OF 'A BEAUTIFUL NOW' COME THROUGH WITH REAL POWER AT TIMES. THE FILM VIVIDLY EXAMINES DETERIORATING RELATIONSHIPS AND BULGING RESENTMENTS, BUT ALSO THE SINGULAR STRANGENESS OF FRIENDSHIP'S TESTED."
- BLU-RAY.COM


"HAUNTING PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDY... INSIGHTFUL."
- IT'S JUST MOVIES


"SURREAL, LYRICAL... A HAUNTING FILM. AMAVIA MAKES A STRIKING DEBUT WITH A STORY THAT RESONATES FAR BEYOND ITS RUNTIME. REPLETE WITH GREAT PERFORMANCES FROM STAR ABIGAIL SPENCER AND AN ENSEMBLE CAST WITH IRRESISTIBLE RAPPORT. NOT MANY FILMS CAPTURE THE MESSY, INTRICATE DYNAMICS OF CLOSE FRIENDS THE WAY AMAVIA DOES HERE. THIS IS AS IMPRESSIVE AS A DEBUT GETS, FEATURING A STRONG CINEMATIC VOICE THAT PIERCES DEEP WITH FOCUS AND URGENCY."

"3 1/2 STARS. ETHEREAL AND SPARKLING... THERE IS VERY MUCH TO RECOMMEND."

Synopsis

A group of five friends reunite for one night to save the woman, Romy (Abigail Spencer), at the center of their former circle. As the night progresses they struggle with their past relationships and finally truths are revealed as Romy, who has barricaded herself in the bathroom, tries to put the pieces of her life back together. This thrilling journey into the mind of a woman teetering on the edge of letting go ultimately asks "if your life flashed before your eyes- would you like what you see?" and reveals a gripping story of how the past shapes who we will become.
