The Happiest Place on Earth (2015) Review

The Happiest Place on Earth is a feature-length Indie Film out of Florida by Unwashed Entertainment, Doctrine Creative, and GnC Films and now found on Amazon Video. Written by first-time director John Goshorn, Jennifer Faith Ward and Tom Kemnitz Jr. play two newlyweds, Maggie and Jonah Price, who are just setting out on their path to discover what their American Dream holds in store when financial problems threaten to derail the ride before it even gets started.
Compounding the problem is the sudden and questionable disappearance of Jonah, which leaves Maggie struggling to make sense not just of the financial issues, but also the marriage as well. How long does one hold out hope? When is it ok to ask for help?
The story seemed to sometimes crawl along at a slower pace, but the plot itself is pretty solid. The twists and turns may have also lacked some luster, but taking in the whole atmosphere of the film, it doesn’t really detract from it.
Overall I would say The Happiest Place on Earth was a worthy first-time effort from John Goshorn, and I am excited to see what he can do in the future.
