Raquel Laguna/SUCOPRESS. Actress HALA FINLEY talks in this interview about her movie Paradise Highway, directed by Anna Gutto, and about working alongside French actress Juliette Binoche. In the film, Hala plays Leila, a girl who is a victim of human trafficking. Finley says she loves playing strong female characters and that her role as Leila has been the most difficult of her career. On PARADISE HIGHWAY, Academy Award winners Juliette Binoche and Morgan Freeman lead this riveting thriller set in the trucking industry and its seamy underbelly of human trafficking. To save the life of her brother (Frank Grillo), Sally (Binoche), a truck driver, reluctantly agrees to smuggle illicit cargo: a girl named Leila (Hala Finley). As Sally and Leila begin a danger-fraught journey across state lines, a dogged FBI operative (Freeman) sets out on their trail, determined to do whatever it takes to terminate a human-trafficking operation, and bring Sally and Leila to safety.
