Beauty and The Least movie scene

Mischa Barton brightens up Beauty and The Least.

Mischa Barton (You and I) continues her seeming slide into oblivion—or, at least, into semi-obscurity—as the star of the little-known 2012 independent comedy-drama Beauty and the Least. Not that we’re slamming a movie we haven’t seen, but we’re not at all familiar with this one…

Likeable looser Ben Banks is a serial underachiever and stoner in his 12the year of community college. But when he musters up the courage to ask out Amy (Barton), a beautiful barista at the local java shop, she surprisingly accepts. As Ben’s feelings for Amy grow deeper, he stumbles across a shocking secret about her past. Now, he must embark on a mission to reclaim her dignity, prove his love and become an adult.

Originally entitled Ben Banks and written and directed by Bryce Clark, Beauty and the Least also stars Melora Hardin (TV’s The Office) and David Sullivan (Argo).

According to the imdb, the unrated movie received some sort of theatrical exposure in December, 2012, but we can’t find any critics’ reviews of it online, only a few so-so reader reviews.

Regardless, here’s a trailer:
