No Place Like Home

Cinema Rediscovered

A freewheeling road movie through 1970s Jamaica, No Place Like Home is Perry Henzell’s little-known follow-up to the classic The Harder They Come. Believed lost for over 25 years, the film was rediscovered, lovingly restored, and now presented on screens across the UK for the first time.  

 “…the memorable last testament of an undeniably great filmmaker”

Susan (Susan O’Meara) is the American producer of a shampoo commercial being shot in Jamaica. When the star, PJ (PJ Soles from Carrie and Halloween), abandons the shoot, Susan sets out to find her with the help of charismatic local fixer Carl (Carl Bradshaw). Making their way through the countryside, Susan and Carl find themselves attracted to each other. Neither of them, however, has any illusions about the different worlds to which they belong.  

If The Harder They Come took its cues from Sergio Leone and Melvin Van Peebles, the naturalistic and improvised No Place Like Home reveals Perry Henzell’s affinity with the cinema of John Cassavetes, Robert Altman and Dennis Hopper. Introducing actress Grace Jones, No Place Like Home is the memorable last testament of an undeniably great filmmaker with a handpicked soundtrack including Bob Marley, Etta James, Carly Simon, Toots & The Maytals and more.

Presented as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery and MUBI.
