Storyline

"The Other Side of Paradise" is a highly entertaining comedy about a girl named Rose who embarks on a journey of self-discovery on the way to her first gallery opening. Along the way, she picks up Alex, the newly single friend she's always had feelings for, and her misfit younger brother Jamie, who recently was released from prison. On the road trip, the trio encounter off-the-wall characters and hilarious cameos that chew up the Texas countryside. In the end, the three must come to grips with their own issues of trust, abandonment, love, and ultimately hope. Written by Striped Socks Productions Staff

The Other Side of Paradise
20 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

The Other Side of Paradise is a gem of a movie. It made me think, smile, and long to live more in Rose's (Arianne Martin's) quirky world. This has become one of my favorite road movies because of the ways writer director Justin Hilliard reveals his characters. We learn what a silver tongued fast talker Alex (John Elliott) is when he and Rose suffer the consequences in the Truth or Dare game. Jamie (Frank Mosley)is just the very best with dead pan humor. His initial meeting with hotel swingers Heather (Robin Read) and George (Jeff Fenter) is to be relished. Rose and Jamie's crusty father (Jodie Moore) and rejecting mother (Susana Looney) show us why kids can survive in spite of their parents. These people may be dysfunctional and you sure do love them. It should rank right up there with Little Miss Sunshine.
