The Other Side of Paradise
Three oddball Texans experience the time-honored tradition of road-trip-as-self-discovery in this quirky indie dramedy. Written and directed by Justin D. Hilliard, the film follows aspiring photographer Rose (Arianne Martin) as she, her friend/love-interest Alex (John Elliott), and her recently paroled brother, Jamie (Frank Mosley), travel from Dallas to Austin for an art gallery opening. ~ Sandra Bencic, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Displays enough talent in front of and behind the camera to compensate for its sluggish pacing and general air of familiarity."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Funny, wise, tender and well-nuanced while boasting a radiant, genuinely charming performance by Arianne Martin."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Chronicling the couple's one-on-one relationship issues and roadway encounters of the eccentric and downright traumatic kind, the pic shifts tonal gears with ease, its trio of lead thesps registering realistically if not always engagingly."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"A welcoming indie road movie that has its faults but otherwise speaks well for Justin D. Hilliard, its director and co-writer."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
