Monty Python’s Life of Brian

“He’s not the Messiah — he’s a very naughty boy!”

This Easter, Brian returns!!  Catch Monty Python’s Life of Brian on the big screen Thursday, April 18th in glorious standard definition and mono-sound from Trafalgar Releasing! 

Armed with absurdity and superbly British wit, Monty Python’s Life of Brian follows the misadventures of the titular Nazarene (Graham Chapman) who was born in the stables next to Jesus. As he grows older and becomes a young man, he finds himself at the wrong place in the wrong time and finds himself unintentionally fulfilling a prophecy after being mistaken for the Messiah.
Starring the entire Python crew in multiple roles, this clever satire mixes sly commentary on theology and early philosophy with cosmic absurdity to remind us nothing should be taken too seriously – and to always look on the bright side of life! 

“A cheeky, irreverent parallel to the life of Jesus by the last great comedy troupe to make movies.” – Marty Mapes, Movie Habit

“An icon of irreverent comic brilliance.” – Bill Gibron, PopMatters

“The more things change, the more we have to laugh if we are to have a prayer of remaining sane, and the Pythons are the best possible step in that direction.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
