No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home

Directed by Perry Henzell • 2006 • Jamaica, United States
Starring Susan O’Meara, Carl Bradshaw, Countryman

The follow-up to Perry Henzell’s Jamaican-cinema landmark THE HARDER THEY COME was shot in the midseventies but not completed until three decades later. When the shampoo commercial she’s shooting on location in Jamaica unexpectedly stalls, a New York producer (Susan O’Meara) enlists a local driver (Carl Bradshaw) to take her on a journey into the countryside, a freewheeling road trip that opens her eyes to another side of life on the island. Featuring a dynamite reggae and pop soundtrack and an appearance from a then-unknown Grace Jones, NO PLACE LIKE HOME is a languorous immersion into the sights and sounds of rural Jamaica.
