Erin Vassilopoulos's debut feature is a real treat for fans of David Lynch's and Mark Frost's cult favorite Twin Peaks and the aesthetics of the 1980s. Filmed on 16mm and featuring a hypnotic soundtrack, this highly atmospheric film was developed from Vassilopoulos's short film from seven years ago, which was also titled Superior. The film's protagonists are Marian and Vivian, twins who have almost nothing in common other than their blood ties and physical resemblance. Marian is a free spirit, a thrill-seeking artist with a complicated past, while Vivian has chosen the stable life of a housewife. When Marian shows up unexpectedly on her sister's doorstep after many years away, she’s received at first with a certain reserve. But it soon turns out that the bond between twins has rules of its own and the two sisters have a lot more in common than they might think. And no one knows that better than lead actors Alessandra and Ani Mesa, who in real life are in fact twins.
