Pooling To Paradise
Starring: Lynn Chen, Jonathan Lipnicki, Dreama Walker, Jordan Carlos
& Taryn Manning
Pooling to Paradise is an indie comedy road movie about a ride share that turns into an unexpected road trip to Paradise, NV for four strangers each at a crossroads in their lives, who find unexpected connection.
Jenny, a mom living in Los Angeles with her husband and three kids is filled with Mommy Angst. She is off to a blogger conference in Vegas to jumpstart her life after kids career.
Calling a ride-share to the airport, she accidentally chooses “pool’ and soon finds herself in a car full of strangers that includes: Kara, a struggling actress feminist; Sean, a tightly wound, heartbroken talent agent; and, Marc, their driver, a hipster anarchist shaman.
As the journey begins, these very different personalities clash. Each wonders if hell truly is other people, and if they can survive the ride together. However, over the course of the trip, each begins to peel away the layers of the onion that is their lives, share vulnerabilities and bond over the challenges of coming of age in today’s world.
Full of humor, heart, pathos and a psilocybin drug trip in Death Valley, unexpected connections are forged as each finds their own personal Paradise.
Spoil free, my opinion is that it’s more of a light drama, than really a comedy.
I really liked the story and the drama.
The fun in the ride share adventure is discovering the characters.
Jenny gave up a career as a TV journalist for her family. Kara is caught between what she wants in life versus her family. Sean simply messed up his life over a bad decision. Marc just wants to enjoy life.
I really liked the movie. The characters feel like new friends we’re meeting for the first time.
I hope you check Pooling To Paradise out!

I love new indie films and I love road trips. I’m definitely going to check this movie out.
That must have been one long car ride. I like that they use a blogger in the movie.
