Exclusive: A Beautiful Now follows a beautiful, tempestuous dancer who, on her birthday, has locked herself inside her bathroom with a bottle of champagne and a loaded gun and threatens to kill herself. Her formerly close-knit friends are forced to reunite for the evening, holding an all night vigil as they try to figure out how she reached rock bottom. Framed by a narrative balancing reality and fantasy, flashbacks reveal the betrayal, animosity, promiscuity, neurosis, addictions, compromised dreams, and sincere friendship shared by the group. Or as the tagline puts it, if your life flashed before your eyes, would you like what you see? Ahead of the film’s September/October North American release, get a sense of how that plays out in this exclusive trailer.

A Beautiful Now has been making a big splash over the last year on the festival circuit, racking up awards and critical acclaim with particular praise for writer-director Daniela Amavia and star Abigail Spencer. Distributed by Monterey Media, A Beautiful Now is set to hit theaters in early fall right as Spencer’s new gig on NBC’s science fiction thriller series Timeless has its premiere. Along with Spencer, the film stars Cheyenne Jackson, Collette Wolfe, and Sonja Kinski.
