Perry Henzell’s reggae-laced follow-up to The Harder They Come peels back the tourist’s view of Jamaica in its story of a New York producer whose shampoo-commercial shoot goes awry when the star (PJ Soles) disappears into the island. Thought lost for over thirty years until the rediscovery of the camera negative in the early 2010s, No Place Like Home is a languid trip through the real Jamaica as seen by a white interloper. The film brims with life, saturated with color and music. New restoration!
