This Friday, the new drama Paradise Highway, starring Juliette Binoche as a truck driver who bonds with her “cargo”, a 12-year-old girl who is to be trafficked and will go through any lengths to protect her, will be released in select theaters, On Demand, and Digital from Lionsgate.

To celebrate the upcoming release of the film, I have exclusive interviews with writer/director Anna Gutto (who makes her feature film directorial debut) and Hala Finley, who gives off a powerful performance as the young Leila.

Special Thanks goes to Katrina Wan PR, Anna Gutto, and Hala Finley for making these interviews possible.
