In this futuristic fairy tale, Uma (Emma Roberts, Scream Queens) wakes to find herself at Paradise Hills, a mysterious facility located on an idyllic island where high-class families send their daughters to become unnaturally perfect versions of themselves — run by the mysterious Duchess (Milla Jovovich, The Fifth Element).
“A stunning, vibrant fairy tale packed with riveting ideas … one of the most visually spectacular movies of the year.” – Ben Pearson, Slashfilm
The outspoken Uma finds solace in friendship with other Paradise Hills residents: Chloe (Danielle McDonald, Pattycakes), Yu (Awkwafina, The Farewell), and Mexican popstar Amarna (Eiza González, Baby Driver). As she begins to explore the reality of Paradise Hills, Uma soon realizes that a sinister secret lurks behind all this beauty. With exquisitely lush futuristic sets, dreamy art deco-inspired costumes and a bounty of strong actresses, Paradise Hills, the directorial debut of visionary fashion designer Alice Waddington, is a totally unique vision of femininity and oppression – a beguiling fantasy confection with a dark horror center.
