Indian-American beauty pageants meet Election and Legally Blonde.

Lily (Tiya Sircar, The Internship) is a winner, but when her boyfriend leaves her for a vapid beauty pageant queen, she gets the notion that winning the "Miss India America" title would bring him back. Since Lily is perfect in everything else she does, it should be a cinch...or so she thinks. The pageant world isn't just pretty smiles and high heels, and her main competition, Sonia (Hannah Simone, New Girl), gives her a run for her money. Actor Ravi Kapoor’s (Crossing Jordan, Heroes) feature directorial debut is a story of beauty, grace, and elegance, which also looks to destroy our ideas of perfection and single-perspective thinking. Engrossing, thought-provoking, and simply entertaining, Miss India America is a truly delightful gem. - Kyle Burt
