Called “amazing” by the Chicago Sun-Times; “one of the best documentaries to unveil at South by Southwest” by Roger Ebert, an “absolute must watch” by Deadspin, “a film we could really use right now” by  The Hollywood Reporter, “one of the best films this decade” by ChicagoNow (and garnering a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating), A MOST BEAUTIFUL THING, narrated by the Academy-Award/Grammy-winning artist, Common; executive-produced by NBA Stars Grant Hill and Dwyane Wade along with Grammy-award winning producer 9th Wonder; and directed by award-winning filmmaker (and Olympic rower) Mary Mazzio, chronicles the first African American high school rowing team in this country (made up of young men, many of whom were in rival gangs from the West Side of Chicago), all coming together to row in the same boat.  An amazing story.  

The film, which was set to debut at South by Southwest and open theatrically nationwide with AMC Theatres in March and again on July 31, is now, due to COVID-19, headed online with our partner Comcast NBCUniversal.  The film will begin streaming for Xfinity customers on July 31 and begin streaming on Peacock, NBC’s new streaming platform, beginning September 4.  The film will also be on Amazon later this fall, with a new companion soundtrack. FILA will also be dropping “A Most Beautiful Thing” shoe with proceeds to benefit the A Most Beautiful Thing Inclusion Fund.

50% OF THE BOX OFFICE and FILM SCREENING PROFITS from A MOST BEAUTIFUL THING WILL BE DONATED TO SUPPORT THE WORK OF ARSHAY COOPER AND ROWING INCLUSION EFFORTS, TRAUMA RESEARCH and the NAACP .
