Hurt by Paradise

Celeste, a young mother, tries to carve out a career as a poet in modern-day London with comically unsuccessful results. Meanwhile, friend and neighbour Stella dreams of being an actor but spends much of her time babysitting Celeste’s son.


Part ode to one of the great cities of the world, Hurt by Paradise is a tale of friendship and family.



"A whimsical debut feature….  a perceptive and often hilariously funny story about friendship and family ties in this glorious adventure.   …. handsomely acted and full of charming and surreal moments"      THE MIRROR


"Lovingly filmed….quirky, gently funny ode to female friendship"    WOMAN’S OWN
