The realities of a polyamorous relationship anchors MA BELLE, MA BEAUTY, a France-set American indie. The European setting and jazzy feel of the film seem to underscore Marion Hill’s long association with New Orleans—and distinguish the film from what we’ve come to expect from many US independent films in look and feel. It’s a treat to see Hill’s characters, beguilingly played by an attractive group of newcomers, navigate their passions and jealousies—especially against beautiful French locations.

Winner of the NEXT Audience Award at Sundance 2021.
