Movie Info

On an isolated island, Uma (Emma Roberts) wakes up to find herself at Paradise Hills, a facility where high-class families send their daughters to become perfect versions of themselves. The facility is run by the mysterious Duchess (Milla Jovovich) where calibrated treatments including etiquette classes, vocal lessons, beauty treatments, gymnastics and restricted diets, revolve all physical and emotional shortcomings within two months. The outspoken Uma finds solace and friendship in other Paradise Hills residents -- Chloe (Danielle McDonald), Yu (Awkwafina) and Mexican popstar Amarna (Eiza Gonzalez). Uma soon realizes that lurking behind all this beauty is a sinister secret. It's a race against the clock as Uma and her friends try to escape Paradise Hills before it consumes them all.

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (36) | Rotten (22)

  • Give it up for "Paradise Hills" for swinging for the fences when it comes to bat-bleep crazy.

    Nov 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A disappointingly half-baked riff on The Stepford Wives whose brand of feminism feels more 1970s than 2010s.

    Oct 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is a film that, if I was 15-years-old and having a sleepover with my friends, I would 100 percent want to put on.

    Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There are a few good ideas, and a few good twists at the end, but it's not enough to make up for the rookie mistakes that undercut its potential.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A clever if somewhat under-realized mash-up of "The Prisoner," "The Hunger Games" and "The Stepford Wives," the movie has such confidence - and such an impressive sense of design - that its simplistic narrative isn't much of a drawback.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a lot to take in, and "Paradise Hills" isn't up to the task.
