Best Friends Forever
Directed by Brea Grant
BEST FRIENDS FOREVER is a post-apocalyptic Thelma and Louise, where the bond of two badass girlfriends can survive anything, even the end of the world.
Harriet (writer/director Brea Grant) is a perpetually perky comic-book artist who has hit a dead-end in Los Angeles. She drags her party-girl BFF Reba (co-writer Vera Miao) along for a road trip to Austin, Texas. Just as they pull out of town, a series of atomic bombs explode across the U.S., and the duo's priorities have to shift from boys and beer to surviving the apocalypse.
A dark comedy, heartfelt road trip and pulse-pounding disaster movie wrapped in one irresistible package, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER redefines the phrase "girl power" and asks the question: when faced with the end of the world - what is most important to you?
"A warm and somewhat uplifting film about the worst day the planet will ever see. It's an honest, down-to-earth look at what might happen when everything around you crumbles, yet it manages to have its heart in the right place. - Film School Rejects
