Cinetopia Film Festival: The Sublime and Beautiful

Thursday, June 05, 2014

(U.S.A.–2014/directed by Blake Robbins)

When a terrible tragedy strikes a family in a Kansas suburb days before Christmas, patriarch David (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 does whatever he can to hold on. But he is also forced to make decisions that will test the limits of his mortality. With powerful performances by Robbins and Laura Kirk (as David’s wife Kelly), The Sublime and the 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 the Beautiful provides artistic integrity and riveting storytelling, all while reminding the viewer to remember what’s really important in life.
