Hold on to your Bibles, kids, because it's time to explore some worldly pleasures. Julianne Hough stars as churchgoing good girl Lamb, whose perspective completely changes when she gets in a life-threatening plane crash in Paradise, Diablo Cody's directorial debut. Now questioning her entire belief system, Lamb heads to Sin City, because where better to sin, right? There she meets a charming bartender (Russell Brand) and a woman (Octavia Spencer) who agrees to help her check off all the items on her "Sin Napkin."
As a fan of Cody's previous work (Juno, Young Adult), I'm really looking forward to seeing what she can do behind the camera. I can't help but think of Rock of Ages when I see Hough and Brand getting into shenanigans, but this looks a lot more endearing and genuine. Paradise is available on DirecTV on Aug. 8 and hits theaters Oct. 18. Until then, check out the trailer after the jump.
