Some great new stills have come out for Oscar-winning screenwriter ’s directorial debut, Paradise. The movie tells the story of Lamb (), a young conservative Christian woman who loses her faith after surviving a plane accident with horrible burns. She decides to head to Vegas and befriends a craps dealer () and a bartender ().

Says Cody (who wrote the Academy Award-winning original script for Juno in 2007) of her first work:

If you have ever been through something incredibly difficult, such as this kind of injury, you know it's hard to stay positive and not surrender to cynicism completely. I wanted to make a non-cynical movie that would inspire positivity. (USA Today)

The photos, brought by IndieWire, show eight different scenes from the movie and a set shot of Diablo behind the camera as a bonus. Enjoy!

Paradise comes out on October 18th.
