HES THE BEST is a raw and intimate portrayal of one woman's routine of self-care. Clare is getting ready for her night with Ryan and doing everything she is 'supposed' to do with painstaking attention --she whitens, she moisturizes, she shaves everything. In her attempts to achieve a cultural fantasy glorified in the pages of Cosmopolitan and other Woman's Interest magazines Clare starts to realize her need for a truer form of self-care.
