Paradise Hills ★★

Probably the most positive thing I have to say about Paradise Hills is that the production design and costumes are absolutely splendid, with much of the film being a colourful feast for the eyes. However, sadly I have to say that the film doesn’t have the substance to match the style, with the highly derivative dystopian plot feeling quite empty. In fact, I thought that similar themes about feminity were tackled much better in last year’s Level 16, though that film didn’t have a pink colour palette. Unless you are a fan of the film’s cast of twenty-somethings, I wouldn’t really recommend Paradise Hills, no matter how good it looks.
