WE ALL LOVE THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS is a darkly comedic drama set in an affluent suburban community. Personal betrayal leads to brutal conflict, causing relationships between husbands and wives, parents and teenagers, friends and neighbours to unravel.
One frigid winter night, the lives of three affluent families, begin to unravel when MIA and MICHAEL SLATE discover that their close friend, PETER CONRAD, who is also Michael’s business partner, has cheated Michael out of his share of the business. That same night, the Slate’s teenaged son, FINN, passes out in the snow during a party at the KELLYS’ house, where he is left by his jealous friend to nearly freeze to death. The two events on this single night send shockwaves through the suburban community, leading to acts of infidelity, betrayal, and violence, but with surprising sparks of humour and moments of kindness.
