      Paradise Review - FilmGordon Radio

Lamb Mannerheim’s (Julianne Hough) faith is shaken after a plane crash burns two-thirds of her body, and she shocks her small-town congregation when she publicly renounces God.

As she sets out to experience the worldly pleasures of Las Vegas, she meets a bartender (Russell Brand) and a cynical lounge singer (Octavia Spencer) who help her check off as many dirty deeds as possible from her Napkin of Sin bucket list.

Written and directed by Diablo Cody, in her directorial debut, Paradise stars Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer, Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman.

Grade: C+

One thought on “Reel Shorts | Paradise

  1. sounds like a little humor (Russell Brand) mixed in with the spiritual. should be a movie that’ll make you laugh, but also one that will make you think about your own life. i think i’ll check this out.
