smile-orange-essential-caribbean-films

Based on the play Smile Orange, by Trevor Rhone, this fresh and funny take on resort life in Jamaica was an education in itself. With Carl Bradshaw nailing the role of Ringo, a con man working Jamaicaโ€™s tourist industry, the experience of watching the film was heart-warming โ€“ it was great hearing our accent on screen and seeing a story so unique to our lives in the Caribbean on the big screen. While some might criticize its cinematographic elements, Smile Orange is a classic, and Carl Bradshaw is the man!
