Barbarella meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this lavish and dazzling dystopic nightmare starring Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians), Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), and Eiza González (Baby Driver). When a young girl wakes up alone on a strange island called Paradise, she instantly suspects it’s anything but. Helmed by the Duchess, Paradise Hills is a center for emotional healing that at its core serves as a reformatory-style boarding school for privileged young women. Yet behind the rose-covered pathways and fairy-tale decor, there is something more sinister at work. Written by Spanish-born Alice Waddington (Popcorn Frights 2015 Disco Inferno), Nacho Vigalando (Time Crimes), and Brian Deeleuw (Popcorn Frights 2019 Daniel Isn’t Real), PARADISE HILLS is a spectacular cautionary fable anchored in a profound understanding of the darkest corners of human nature.
