A stranger in paradise official trailer 2015 dvd action movie release hd
A Stranger in Paradise is a 2013 thriller film directed by Corrado Boccia. It stars Colin Egglesfield, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Stuart Townsend.
Josh Pratt (Colin Egglesfield) is on the verge of becoming a partner at his multibillion-dollar hedge fund, but then his life is turned upside down when the Securities and Exchange Commission investigates the head of the fund for insider trading. Pratt finds himself forced into a “vacation” he never asked for; he ends up in Bangkok with a price on his head, a morally ambiguous brother who is deeply involved with the Thai mafia, and a propensity for getting shot at.
Unfortunately for Pratt, the only way out is to give up information he doesn’t know he has.

Critical reception for A Stranger in Paradise has been predominantly negative. The Los Angeles Times and The Dissolve both panned the movie; the Los Angeles Times wrote "Besides the pedestrian caricatures of gangsters and strippers, Boccia doesn't make much of the inherent mystery and alienation of the Thai setting as Nicolas Winding Refn did with "Only God Forgives." Even the twists late in the plot underwhelm."
