“It’s uncomfortably real, but that authenticity makes it a great film.”


PERFECTION is an independent feature film about an unlikely love story that proves we are more than our scars.


Kristabelle, still living with her Mother cuts herself to feel alive. Her Mother, addicted to plastic surgery also cuts herself trying to maintain her youth. Through the help of a pot smoking young lover, a newly sober British stand up comic and Chinese medicine they all find that love can be more than skin deep. 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.
