Movie Info

On an isolated island, Uma (Emma Roberts) wakes up to find herself at Paradise Hills, a facility where high-class families send their daughters to become perfect versions of themselves. The facility is run by the mysterious Duchess (Milla Jovovich) where calibrated treatments including etiquette classes, vocal lessons, beauty treatments, gymnastics and restricted diets, revolve all physical and emotional shortcomings within two months. The outspoken Uma finds solace and friendship in other Paradise Hills residents -- Chloe (Danielle McDonald), Yu (Awkwafina) and Mexican popstar Amarna (Eiza Gonzalez). Uma soon realizes that lurking behind all this beauty is a sinister secret. It's a race against the clock as Uma and her friends try to escape Paradise Hills before it consumes them all.

  • An off-kilter, steampunk blend of Disney, The Handmaids Tale and The Stepford Wives, writer/director Alice Waddington's feature debut is entirely as intriguing as that sounds.

  • Every shot of Paradise Hills is otherworldly in its beauty. I'm not sure how it "reads" as a narrative, but as a visual work of art, a tone poem, and a riff on some familiar but evergreen themes it makes one stand and applaud.

    November 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Narrated with unusual elegance, with excellent performances from the entire female cast, and gifted with a perverse and twisted flair, this is one of the most unique debuts of Spanish cinema in years. [Full Review in Spanish]

    November 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's no tension as to where things are going to end up, the final images leaving me cold.

    November 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • PARADISE HILLS is a lush and occasionally provocative feature, one that creates a strange sense of wonder and weird.

    November 2, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Give it up for "Paradise Hills" for swinging for the fences when it comes to bat-bleep crazy.

Audience Reviews for Paradise Hills

  • Dec 28, 2019
    I think Paradise Hills was almost good, and it's disappointing that it fell short of actually achieving that. Of course, it was almost crap too, so dodging that by the skin of its teeth is good, though not exactly high praise.
