Octavia Spencer Stars in Diablo Cody's PARADISE, on Blu-ray/DVD 11/12
Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, announces the DVD, Blu-rayTM and Digital Download release of PARADISE on November 12, 2013.
The film is written and directed by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody (Juno), and delivers a hilarious tale of innocence lost and paradise found. PARADISE stars Julianne Hough (Safe Haven), Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer (The Help), Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek), Academy Award winner Holly Hunter (The Piano) and Nick Offerman (NBC's "Parks and Recreation"). PARADISE will debut on DVD at an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-rayTM at an SRP of $29.97.
PARADISE tells the story of 21-year-old Lamb Mannerheim (Hough), who after a nearly fatal accident, is beginning to realize that the world is much bigger than her small, God-fearing Montana town. Armed with a big, fat insurance payout and a checklist of untried sins, there's only one place for her first taste of temptation...Las Vegas! Now this wide-eyed, innocent girl will have to navigate the bright lights, seedy bars and dark alleys of "Sin City." And, with the help of a few new friends (Brand and Spencer), Lamb just might survive her strange adventure and discover what it means to really live. Holly Hunter and Nick Offerman also star in this oddball odyssey of lost souls, broken faith and cheap cocktails...a true journey of the heart.
PARADISE is written and directed by Diablo Cody, produced by Mason Novick, and executive produced by Diablo Cody, Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown.
