Came to the screening as a skeptic,but left as a believer...
21 November 2015 | by jackwhite736See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Virginia Film Festival and honestly, I expected just another "indie" drama, that like so many other low budget films (under a Million), with no "A- List" actors would be cheesy, boring, and predictable.... what I got instead was a film that had me hooked after the first 5 minutes, and truly interested in the fates of the films well developed and believable characters right up to the very end. Easily Hollywood Studio quality, without the usual clichés, and bland plot lines of so many multi-million dollar flops produced by Hollywood these days. Solid feature film directorial debut for Morgulis who apparently had won a couple of awards for short-film documentaries prior to this undertaking. Excellent cinematography (some scenes had that almost surreal beauty you see in films like O'Brother Where Art Thou) and the soundtrack matched well with the mood throughout the movie, and set the pace when needed. Solid acting all around by the cast. Honestly no complaints, just a solid movie that delivered on all fronts. I'm glad my girlfriend "dragged" me to see it, instead of the film I wanted to go see, which ended up being a dud (we saw it the next day at the second screening). Overall, some minor flaws could be nit-picked, but the movie is definitely worth watching. Also, the title, "Paradise, FL" just fits perfectly in a sly and witty sort of way.
