Paradise


Paradise
Diablo Cody, who scored a major hit with Juno, tries her hand at directing as well as writing. A devout young woman's 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 and a cynical lounge singer who help her check off as many dirty deeds as possible from her Napkin of Sin bucket list.

86 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12 (Language, Drug abuse).
Comedy, Drama.
