Karen can't believe that she has to work her receptionist gig on a gorgeous Fourth of July. Then a call comes from her long-lost father and sets in motion a crazy chain of events that will change one small town forever. Meanwhile, Megan must decide between the stability of her longtime girlfriend and the thrill of a new love. Young Ray fends off bullies and organized sports to woo the girl he likes. In a little burg like this, you’d better believe everything is connected, which means that pretty soon everyone is mixed up in each other’s business.
Writer/director Erin Greenwell confidently juggles the multiple plots, serving up a charming, up-to-the-minute slice of Americana. This is Mayberry 2012, where Opie waxes existential and Aunt Bea has finally come out of the closet. Greenwell's quirky script and great ensemble performances ensure that My Best Day is both subversive and sunny. Cue the fireworks!
