What would you do for a second chance at first love?
Mara, now hovering between the plus-size and regular-size worlds, leaves her husband at home and drags her equally outcast best friend to their ten-year High School reunion. Mara wants a second chance with her unrequited first love and learns he’s come back for her. Perfect 10, a semi-autobiographical tale, is a film about identity, self-respect and the beauty of dysfunctional friendship.

Writer-directors Lindy and Kris Boustedt have crafted an absorbing film that combines the nostalgia and fear of class reunions into an off-beat dramatic comedy. Mara, drawn from a semi-autobiographical experience, is a character that everyone can relate to: she’s a beautiful plus-size woman who has endured public ridicule and wants nothing more than to see her high school fantasy play out to her desired conclusion.
As at any high school reunion, expectations are meant to be broken, and all four lead characters find themselves fastened in a knot from which honesty is the only way out.
Shot on location across Washington State, Perfect 10 features fearless acting performances and a narrative of twisting complexity that will have audiences talking long after the credits roll.
