When a terrible tragedy strikes a family in a small Kansas suburb days before Christmas, the patriarch David (played by writer/director Blake Robbins) must come to terms with his devastating grief, while trying to maintain a grasp on his home life. Like any person in his situation, David must do whatever he can to hold on. But is also forced to make decisions that will test the limits of his morality. With powerful performances by Robbins and Laura Kirk (as David’s wife Kelly), THE SUBLIME AND BEAUTIFUL is a searing look inside the life of a man who at one point had it all, but must now reprioritize when everything is taken away. How far will David go in his search for closure, and how close is he to his breaking point? THE SUBLIME AND BEAUTIFUL provides a unique combination of artistic integrity and riveting storytelling, all while offering the viewer an opportunity to remember what’s really important in life. —T.W.
