Paradise: Hope is the third and final installment in the Paradise trilogy by Austrian director Ulrich Seidl. The film premiered at both the Berlin Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013. Paradise: Hope focuses upon a pre-teen girl named Melanie, played by Melanie Lenz. Melanie is overweight, unhappy, and spending her summer vacation at a diet camp. The heartwarming and predictable experiences she has among the other teens, from pillow fights to sneaking their first cigarettes, lose their luster as well as their innocence when they're contrasted against Melanie's first love: a man nearly three times her senior.
