Last Days in the Desert2015. USA. 98 min.
Director: Rodrigo Garcia Featuring: Ewan McGregor, Ciarán Hinds, Susan Gray, Tye Sheridan, Ayelet Zurer
Ewan McGregor plays both Jesus and the devil in the reimagination of Christ’s 40 days in the desert. On his journey out of the wilderness, Jesus encounters the devil, who is eager to tempt the fatigued traveler. Jesus struggles over a family in crisis and finds himself in a dramatic confrontation with his own fate. Austerely beautiful and mesmerizing, director Rodrigo Garcia partners with acclaimed cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity) to bring to the screen this intense character study of one of history’s most complex figures.
