Paradise: Hope

The 3rd installment from Ulrich Seidl’s award-winning trilogy

"Instead of being contemptuous and sardonic, the portrait of inchoate adolescent longing in Paradise: Hope is poignant."

- The New York Times
All we want for Christmas is to see a really good film. Thanks to Ulrich Seidl, our wish might just come true. The third installment in his Paradise trilogy, Paradise: Hope, follows a teenage girl who is swiftly banished to weight loss camp. The growing pains storyline sounds like it was pulled directly from a Judy Blume book, but don’t cast it off just yet. Seidl examines adolescent trials and tribulations in a way that is as eye-opening as it is realistic…making it a rare gem in the world of cinema. General admission. This film is not appropriate for small children.
