Please remain updated on the latest news of writer, director Christina Beck’s debut feature film, PERFECTION.
The UK premiere of an outstanding American indie production, shot on weekends over a period of two and a half years, now garnering acclaim and awards on the film festival circuit. It’s the story of Kristabelle, a 30 something who still lives with her mother Sally. Whereas Kristabelle is terrified of men and asserting her independence, Sally fancies sees herself as a young, misunderstood sex kitten. While the mother is addicted to plastic surgery, the daughter finds relief from her suffocating life with more secretive cuts. But both are about to discover that love can be more than skin deep. Writer-director Christina Beck also plays Kristabelle and triumphs on all three counts in this beautifully written, perfectly acted and strikingly shot delight. RIO Cinema, London.

Christina Beck’s film Perfection offers an intimate and unflinching look at the secretive and isolating behavior of self-harm and an opportunity for those who suffer and those who work with the suffering to share an awareness and further the process of healing. Susan Seeger LMFT
