About the Movie
Most Beautiful Island is a psychological thriller examining the plight of undocumented female immigrants hoping to make a life in New York City. Shot on Super 16mm with an intimate, voyeuristic sensibility, Most Beautiful Island chronicles one harrowing day in the life of Luciana, a young immigrant woman struggling to make ends meet while striving to escape her past. As Luciana's day unfolds, she is whisked, physically and emotionally, through a series of troublesome and unforeseeable extremes. Before her day is done, she inadvertently finds herself a central participant in a cruel game where lives are placed at risk, and psyches are twisted and broken for the perverse entertainment of a privileged few.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A modest but effective writing-directing debut for Ms. Asensio, who also stars.
Fresh: "Most Beautiful Island" earns whatever trust audiences have put in its unproven storyteller ...
Fresh: Anchored by Asensio's fearless and gripping performance, Most Beautiful Island directs an unflinching point of view toward an often invisible population.
Fresh: Despite some missteps, there are enough strengths to mark this as a promising debut.
Good flick but, change the cover photo, she looks to much like Melanoma ☭Rump .
Is it extraordinay in any way? No, no it's not. But the filmmaker shows promise. I'm looking forward to her next movie already.
Was Not Expecting That!
Whoa, what a gutpunching ending! It's a slow burn but the build up to the end made me sit on the edge of my seat. Not a run of the mill thriller/horror which made it very refreshing to watch, and actually had a plot that stuck with me. Plus Asensio knows how to cause bone chilling tension, and can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
