Fresh out of prison, smooth-talking petty thief Jesus Quintana (John Turturro, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) is ready to roll with his best friend Petey (Bobby Cannavale) riding shotgun. Picking up free-spirited hairdresser Marie (Audrey Tautou) along the way, the three embark on an epic petty crime spree across the rural backroads of New York.

Taking in the idyllic landscapes from the window of a stolen muscle car, the trio spend their days occupied with free love and the pursuit of happiness, and doing whatever it takes to get it…

Writer, director and star John Turturro brings together an all-star cast including Bobby Cannavale (The Irishman, Boardwalk Empire), Audrey Tautou (Amelie), Susan Sarandon (Thelma and Louise), Christopher Walken (True Romance), Pete Davidson (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men). The Jesus Rolls is based upon Bertrand Blier’s controversial sex comedy Going Places (1974).

Blue Finch Film Releasing presents The Jesus Rolls in select cinemas 20 March and on demand 23 March
