Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “‘The Greatest’ tells the story of Allen and Grace Brewer, a grief-stricken couple whose family has been pushed to the breaking point by the death of their older son, Bennett, in a car crash. When a young woman, Rose, shows up a few months later announcing that she is pregnant with Bennett’s child, the Brewer’s are forced to take her in. At first, Rose’s presence threatens to tear the family even further apart but, eventually, her interaction with each of the Brewers proves to be the very thing that brings them back together.
For the past few years, 17-year-old Bennett and Rose always look forward to the moment when their eyes meet as they pass each other going home from school. Still, they never exchange a single word until the very last day of school when Bennett musters up the courage to confess his love to Rose. At last they kiss, and end up having the most memorable night of their lives.
Seconds after Bennett says goodbye to Rose, a tragic car accident takes his life. His mother Grace (Academy Award® winner Sarandon) has a hard time coping with the devastating news and becomes obsessed with the final moments of Bennett’s life. Her husband Allen (Brosnan) tries to make up for his past mistakes while fighting to keep his family together, and the youngest son Ryan feels neglected and overcome by his own problems. And then one night, Rose shows up at their doorstep announcing she is pregnant with Bennett’s baby and has been disowned by her own family. While things will never be the same for each of them, together they come to recognize that the life of a family will carry on.”
