Filled with life-changing adventures and endless possibilities, Leisureland offers more than riches, as Paul discovers a whole new world and realizes that we are meant for something bigger. The comedy also stars Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) and Hong Chau in a breakthrough performance that earned her Golden Globe and SAG nominations.
