The hugely accomplished debut feature by writer-director Shana Feste, The Greatest, released on DVD by High Fliers Films on 12th April 2010, stars two of Britain's hottest young rising talents, Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy; Kick-Ass) and Oscar and double BAFTA Award nominee Carey Mulligan (An Education; Public Enemies), alongside established stars Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia) and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon (The Lovely Bones; Dead Man Walking) in a deeply moving but ultimately uplifting study of a family's grief caused by the loss of a loved one.

One of the standout films previewed at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, The Greatest proved to be a huge hit with audiences there and was hailed by none other than the festival's Director, Geoff Gilmore, as "an enormously moving, intelligent exploration of pain and grieving, a film that will touch you and stay with you."

When their eldest teenage son, Bennett (Johnson), is killed in a car accident the once idyllic lives of Allen (Brosnan) and Grace Brewer (Sarandon) and their younger son Ryan (Johnny Simmons) are uniformly shattered. The deep grief felt by each individual sees Grace becoming obsessed with the most minute details of her son's final moments, Allen seeking comfort in the mathematical problems encountered in his profession as a college tutor and Ryan turning to drugs as his only crutch. Quite unexpectedly, Rose (Mulligan), a young woman who survived the crash in which Bennett died, appears on their doorstep claiming that she is carrying his unborn child.

A mature and heartfelt tearjerker that recalls such superlative 'weepies' as Ordinary People, In The Bedroom and Moonlight Mile, The Greatest boasts exceptional performances from all involved, including excellent support work from Johnny Simmons (Jennifer's Body; Evan Almighty), Zoe Kravitz (The Brave One), Jennifer Ehle (Possession) and Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and features a beautifully subdued musical score by Emmy award winning composer Christophe Beck (Buffy The Vampire Slayer).
