If life gives you oranges…

… make The Right Juice! The first English language feature film fully shot and set in the Algarve in Southern Portugal – its people , it’s beauty, and it’s comedy! The Algarve has been dreaming about a film being made which captures it’s spirit, and we are making that happen. We also happened to make the dreams of everyone involved in the project come true – we made the feature film! The film is currently looking for distribution and starting out on the festival circuit.

What’s the film about?

His career in tatters after stock market speculation in oil futures, a disgraced young banker starts an orange plantation in the Algarve – but his past catches up with him when he strikes oil.

Who wouldn’t want to see a corrupt banker go bankrupt and have to move to a shack in the country to survive? Who doesn’t dream of living in a place in the sun? This is what The Right Juice is all about. Oliver, our hero, is a banker and a greedy bastard. You meet him in the film after he’s been thrown out of London and has a dream of making millions growing oranges in the Algarve.

Picture a young man attempting to refurbish an old farm cottage which is almost in ruins. His lovely wife from the city arrives expecting a villa with a pool… He is dreaming ambitiously. He wants to start an orange plantation but… how to get water for his trees? Is there a market for oranges? Is he running away from his past, or racing towards his future? Encounters with his neighbours, an old enemy from his banking years, new friendships and personal devils all create havoc in what was to be a peaceful, sunny idyll.
