Dear Shaded Viewers,
‘The Best is Yet to Come” is a fairy tale set in nineties New York. Girl meets boy. Love and booze and heartbreak ensue. Decades pass. Girl meets boy. Again. They make a book together. This book. It chronicles their relationship with the help of a secret stash of photos. With cameo appearances by Santa Claus, Hitler, The Danish Queen, Nina Hagen, Kate Moss and the coffin of Allen Ginsberg. It’s about sex, grime and secrets. It’s about how we possess each other as though there can never be another. And then there is. It’s about the stuff that hurts – even half a life later. It’s brutal and beautiful. Like all fairy tales.
Ada Bligaard Søby (b. 1975) is a Danish documentary filmmaker and director.
