Staff Reviews


Mira is an artist and her room is full of color. The streets of her neighborhood, however, are grey and drab. One day Mira meets an artist who envisions something beautiful and the two paint murals on the city walls. The colors and paintings attract the neighbors, inspire music and dancing, and bring the community together. Based on a true story, Maybe Something Beautiful is a gentle reminder that we all need to look beyond the ordinary and envision something beautiful -- something beautiful that inspires us and connects us to the community around us.
