The Greatest is a 2009 American drama film film written and directed by Shana Feste and starring Pierce Brosnan (also an executive producer), Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, and Michael Shannon.



The story of Allen and Grace Brewer (Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon), a couple grieving after the death of their older son Bennett (Aaron Johnson) in a car crash. When a woman, Rose (Carey Mulligan), contacts them and reveals she is pregnant with Bennett’s child, the Brewers invite her to stay in their home. At first, Rose’s presence threatens to tear the family even further apart, but her interaction with each of the Brewers proves to be the very thing that brings them back together.



The film screened at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, where it received multiple standing ovations.[1] Another film starring Mulligan, the Oscar-nominated An Education, also screened at the festival.
