More information

On a small, unnamed coral atoll in the South Pacific, a
group of troubled dreamers must face the possibility
that the hopes they’ve labored after so single-mindedly
might not lead them to the happiness they feel they
were promised.
Ann and Richard, an aspiring, Los Angeles power
couple, are already sensing the cracks in their version
of the American dream when their life unexpectedly
implodes, leading them to brashly run away from home
to a Robinson Crusoe idyll. Dex Cooper, lead singer of the
rock band Prospero, is facing his own slide from greatness,
experimenting with artistic asceticism while accompanied
by his sexy, young, and increasingly entrepreneurial muse,
Wende. Loren, the French owner of the resort sauvage,
has made his own Gauguin-like retreat from the world
years before, only to find that the modern world has
become impossible to disconnect from. Titi, descendent
of Tahitian royalty, worker, and eventual inheritor of the
resort, must fashion a vision of the island’s future that
includes its indigenous people, while her partner, Cooked,
is torn between anarchy and lust.
By turns funny and tragic, The Last Good Paradise
explores our modern, complex and often self-contradictory
discontents, crafting an exhilarating story about our
need to connect in an increasingly networked but
isolating world.
