LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT
OPENS FRIDAY, MAY 13
Beautifully photographed by Emmanuel Lubezki (Oscar winner for The Revenant), the latest from filmmaker Rodrigo García (son of Gabriel García Márquez) dramatizes an imagined chapter from Jesus’ forty days in the desert. Ewan McGregor is Yeshua, on his way out of the wilderness after weeks of subsisting only on water and prayer, who struggles with the Devil (also McGregor) over the fate of an ordinary family in crisis. Contemplating his own paternal relationship, Yeshua encounters a father (Ciarán Hinds) and son (Tye Sheridan) arguing over the boy’s future, while the mother (Ayelet Zurer) lies seriously ill. Not a “faith-based” movie, yet very much a spiritual one, the film explores the human dimensions of its subject. Writer/Director: Rodrigo García. (US 2015) 98 min.
