If “The undertaker is here!” is not something you would ever imagine being shouted excitedly in a club, then this film is ready to broaden your mind. After a slight mishap involving a meditation in the trunk of a hearse, two men find themselves on one of the most unusual road trips put to screen. They could hardly be more different: Louis, resigned to a life of relative solitude, is an undertaker whose work has made him numb to the grim reality of death and all the ensuing complications; Igor, eager to make friends, is a philosophizing delivery man with cerebral palsy and an entirely alternate perspective—on death and much more. While both are outsiders in their own right, on the road they discover they have more in common than they first expected. BEAUTIFUL MINDS is a genuinely heartwarming film that will leave you considering the connections that can be made between people different from yourself, if only you release yourself from expectation…or fall asleep in a hearse. —J.H.
