Jabba’s School Holiday Movie Special – Ticket to Paradise

It’s “fifth time the magic” for Hollywood heavyweights and old friends George Clooney and Julia Roberts with their on-screen reunion in Ticket To Paradise, a humorous and heartfelt rom-com from Mamma Mia 2 director Ol Parker, set at topped the Australian box office when it was released.

After teaming up on Ocean’s Eleven and its sequel, as well as Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind and Money Monster, Roberts and Clooney headed Down Under to shoot their latest film, using the stunning Queensland coastline for tropical Bali was standing.

The story revolves around divorced parents Georgia (Roberts) and David (Clooney) who take a trip to paradise to stop their daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) from cultivating Gede (Maxine Bouttier), a local seaweed farmer who she is met to get married.

Fresh from her award-winning portrayal of coal miner Betsy Mallum in the limited series Dopesick, Dever says playing Lily is a breath of fresh air.

“I was just so excited to work with them (Roberts & Clooney) but when I read the script I was actually shooting Dopesick and I fell in love with this right away and I knew it was going to be a really good time because It was really fun reading the script,” she said.

“And that was something I’ve never done before. And with every project I do, I always try to do something different than the last one, and that was definitely that, and it’s working a different part of your brain. So I learned a lot while making this film. It was great fun.”

For Billie Lourd, who plays Lily’s best friend Wren in the film, shooting in Queensland was like a dream: “We just spent most of the time on the amazing beaches and eating the food. And I took a boat to the Great Barrier Reef and we went to Whitehaven Beach and Hayman Island and all these incredible places. It was wonderful.”

Lourd, daughter of Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, says it was a surreal experience walking the red carpet for a movie premiere after a few years of pandemic lockdown: “I don’t think I’ve been to a premiere Years. It was crazy being with so many people. And it was so uplifting to see fans and people getting excited about the film and then going to an after party and being with people and eating chicken fingers and not drinking because I’m pregnant was just sad.”

Speaking of filming alongside the likes of Clooney and Roberts, Lourd admits, “It’s definitely intimidating to walk on that first day and see how, whoa, there’s a camera and there’s me and there’s George Clooney and there is Julia Roberts – what’s wrong with my life is pretty wild.”

Lucas Bravo, who plays Paul, a French pilot who is dating Georgia, adds: “There was a moment in the cave where I was bitten by a snake, I was lying on my back watching Julia cut my leg held. And I said to Julia, ‘What decisions have brought me to this moment, lying on my back in a cave in Australia with Julia Roberts, sucking poison out of my leg.’ And she said, ‘That’s what we do. That’s what we do’.”

Ticket To Paradise is in theaters now.
