Beautiful Joe is a 2000 American independent comedy-drama film that was directed by Stephen Metcalfe and produced by Lorne Michaels. The film stars Sharon Stone, Billy Connolly, and Gil Bellows. The movie tells the story of Joe (Bellows), a businessman who is unhappy with his life. He is married to a controlling and selfish woman, and his job is unfulfilling. One day, he decides to ditch his old life and start over. He buys a one-way ticket to the island of Malta, and on the flight, he meets Hush (Stone), a lonely woman who is on her way to meet her fiancé.

When they arrive in Malta, Joe discovers that his hotel is a rundown building with no windows, and he immediately regrets his decision to come. However, he meets a colorful and eccentric group of people, including the hotel owner, Elton (Connolly), who becomes his friend and mentor. Elton has a passion for movies and he spends his days quoting lines from his favorite films.

As Joe spends more time on the island, he becomes enamored with Hush, who is struggling with her own personal demons. She is engaged to a man who is cheating on her, and she starts to question whether she should go through with the wedding. Joe and Hush begin a tentative romance, but they are both hesitant to let their guard down.

Meanwhile, Elton introduces Joe to the local filmmaking community, and he starts to work on a movie with them. He discovers a newfound passion for storytelling and filmmaking, and he begins to feel like he has finally found his purpose in life.

The film is a character-driven story that explores themes of self-discovery, love, and creativity. It has a quirky and offbeat tone, with a cast of characters who are all trying to find their place in the world.
