The Jesus Rolls

Revisit one of cinema’s greatest side characters with The Jesus Rolls, a The Big Lebowski spin-off starring and directed by John Turturro.

Imprisoned some time after the events of Lebowski, flamboyant bowler Jesus Quintana (Turturro) is finally set to be released. Shortly after he leaves prison, Jesus pairs up with fellow misfits Petey (Bobby Cannavale) and Marie (Audrey Tautou). Instead of learning from their mistakes and going straight however, the three embark on a freewheeling joyride of petty crime and romance.

Serving as a remake of the 1974 French film Going Places, The Jesus Rolls is a crime comedy that gives audiences the chance to see Turturro reprise one of his most entertaining roles.

“The Jesus Rolls is an enjoyable, sometimes hilarious ride from beginning to end.” – Chris Van Djik, MovieBabble
