Off a dirt road in Bangor, Maine, a precocious 20-year-old woman named Michelle Smith lives with her mother Julie. Michelle is quirky and charming, legally blind and diagnosed on the autism spectrum, with big dreams and varied passions. Searching for new community, Michelle explores love and empowerment outside the limits of “normal” through a provocative fringe community. Will she take the leap to experience the wide world for herself? Michelle’s joyful story of self-discovery celebrates outcasts everywhere.
Best and Most Beautiful Things was directed by Garrett Zevgetis, Executive Produced by Kevin Bright and produced by Ariana Garfinkel and Jeff Consiglio.
The Best and Most Beautiful Things campaign will endeavor to use the Best and Most Beautiful Things film and Michelle’s personal story to #HackNormal in communities across the country – be it at school, at work, or in your general life. The impact campaign will encourage audiences to build a more inclusive society by embracing their unique differences and those of others.
Picture Motion developed the strategic audience engagement and social impact campaign plan for the film’s release.
