Sam’s Recommendation

In a society where sexism and classism run rampant, women’s flaws which make them unfit for society and their husbands, can all be corrected with a simple trip to Paradise Hills.

Set as an elite relaxation centre, Paradise Hills subjects the girls to etiquette classes, vocal classes, beauty treatments, restricted diets, and unusual behaviour modification treatments, all with the promise when they leave Paradise Hills, they’ll be the perfect version of themselves. Soon after their arrival, they see rehabilitated girls leave to go live a perfect life, but seemingly too perfect to be real. Although initially angry, frustrated, and annoyed for being sent away, the girls’ fears intensify when they learn everything is not what it appears to be. The most real thing on the island is the girls’ need to escape Paradise Hills before it consumes them.

The film was nominated for the NEXT Innovator Award at Sundance Film Festival and stars: Emma Roberts, Awkwafina, Danielle MacDonald, Eiza Gonzales, and Milla Jovovich.
