Beautiful, moving, dialogue-less.

Over the past few months, Abigail Spencer has been quietly giving us insight into an award-winner. Julian Higgins' short film "Here and Now"—starring the "Suits" actress and Josh Pence—was among the winners of Canon's Project Imaginat10n Film Contest, a competition in which directors were challenged to make movies inspired by crowd-submitted photos.

"Here and Now" will leave you speechless. Literally. The 10-minute flick quietly tells the touching story of a couple's relationship woes over the span of a single day. There is no dialogue, leaving the breathtaking visuals and nuanced acting to speak for themselves.

The contest judges, which included Ron and Bryce Dallas Howard, were moved to speak up—the film won the top award, sharing the honor with four others.

You can watch "Here and Now" in its entirety at the Project Imaginat10n website, and learn more about its production from Abigail's diary of behind-the-scenes photos shared over the summer. If you like this quiet film, give Abigail a hearty congrats in the comments!
