PARADISE
2013, Image Entertainment, 86 min, USA, Dir: Diablo Cody

For her directorial debut, Diablo Cody offers a take on religious belief that’s unexpectedly warm but just as funny and quotable as her Oscar-winning script for JUNO. After conservative churchgoer Lamb Mannerheim (Julianne Hough) survives a plane crash, she decides life’s too short to box with God and heads for Sin City, where a bartender (Russell Brand) and a lounge singer (Octavia Spencer) introduce her to some of Las Vegas’ worldly pleasures. With Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter.
