DescriptionThe unforgettable characters of Babe in Paradise--an aging stunt man, a chauffeur, and a voice-over actor among them--live on the periphery of Los Angeles's allure, outside its glamour and success. Marisa Silver's singular voice makes us care deeply about their everyday desperations and hard-won hopes.
