What do you get when you bring together Emma Roberts, Awkafina, Eiza Gonzalez, and Danielle Macdonald and trap them in a futuristic, dystopian boarding school for wayward girls which just so happens to be run by Milla Jovovich’s evil Duchess character? You get the twisty new film PARADISE HILLS, where Uma (Roberts) wakes up in an apparently idyllic school for young ladies called Paradise, meant to reform her and her new friends. But there’s a darker secret behind its walls. In this week’s show, we are privileged to have Alice Waddington in the studio with us, the director of the Sundance breakout hit, which just opened up in theaters this past weekend. Watch here:
A little info about Alice:
Paradise Hills is her first feature film and was produced by Spanish production company Nostromo Pictures (‘Penny Dreadful’, ‘Buried’). It’s written by Brian DeLeeuw (‘Daniel isn’t real’) and Academy-Award nominated Nacho Vigalondo (‘Colossal’, ‘Timecrimes’, ‘Extraterrestrial’). It stars Emma Roberts, Awkwafina, Eiza Gonzalez, Danielle Macdonald, Milla Jovovich and Jeremy Irvine. Paradise Hills is the second Spanish debut film to ever be screened at Sundance Film Festival (2019).
