Critic Reviews for The Other Side of Paradise

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Displays enough talent in front of and behind the camera to compensate for its sluggish pacing and general air of familiarity.

January 5, 2010

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.

A welcoming indie road movie that has its faults but otherwise speaks well for Justin D. Hilliard, its director and co-writer.

January 5, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Funny, wise, tender and well-nuanced while boasting a radiant, genuinely charming performance by Arianne Martin.
