Jesus' Son

Set in the 1970s, the story tells of a young man who careens through his days getting stoned, stealing or scamming a quick buck. Through it all, he tries to make sense of the mutually destructive passion he shares with a beautiful young woman (Samantha Morton). Redemption comes to FH (Billy Crudup) vis-a-vis a colorful parade of characters, including a crazed, pill-popping hospital orderly (Jack Black); a down-on-his-luck divorce (Denis Leary); and a half-paralyzed women (Holly Hunter) he meets at rehab. Bit by bit, FH stumbles towards sobriety and lands a job at an assisted living facility where he discovers the depths of his own compassion for others and the grace that comes with it. In the words of director Alison ("CRUSH") Maclean: "It's a story that transforms the bleak and ordinary into little epiphanies that are beautiful, poetic and really funny."
