Mumbai: These girls (and guys) know how to have fun! Get ready for the riot of a lifetime as Lionsgate Play announces the OTT premiere of Joy Ride in India on 6 October. Packed with comedy, drama and some NSFW instances, the film follows Audrey Sullivan on a path to self-discovery. When Audrey’s business trip to Asia goes wrong, she calls on her childhood bestie, Lolo, her college friend Kat and Lolo’s eccentric cousin Deadeye for help. Stranded in a country with nowhere to go, this wild squad embarks on a journey of utter chaos and debauchery that unveils their true loving selves. Starring Ashley Park, Sherry Cola, Stephanie Hsu and Sabrina Wu in titular roles, Joy Ride will stream exclusively on Lionsgate Play.
Talking about her character in the film, Ashley Park said, “Audrey Sullivan has been an honor to play. I feel like there are certain roles that find you in your life exactly when you need them. It was my first time playing the protagonist in the story. She’s a character that feels like she has it all together and understands how to navigate this world, this community, this industry that has been built for and people who don’t look like her. She doesn’t understand that there’s something missing in her own identity until she goes on to this ‘joyride’. It’s been a true honor to play this character who has such nuance and depth and hilarity. I think she finds a part of herself that she didn’t even know she needed to look for.”
Directed by Adele Lim, Joy Ride releases exclusively on Lionsgate Play this 6 October.
