Take a Look at Michael Sheen and Toni Collette in ‘Jesus Henry Christ’

Michael Sheen and Toni Collette in 'Jesus Henry Christ'

This is the state of independent cinema. Talented actors like Michael Sheen and Toni Collette making something that looks a little cute, and little twee. Dennis Lee’s ‘Jesus Henry Christ’ will hit theaters April 20 and now there’s a trailer for this film, and a poster.

Here’s the trailer:

And here’s the poster:

I like these performers, but the question is how cute the film is. Dennis Lee is the director, and he’s adapting his previous short film. Lee’s last film – ‘Fireflies in the Garden’ was made in 2008, but didn’t hit theaters until 2011. Though it may have gone under the radar, he did get a stellar cast for the film, including Ryan Reynolds and Julia Roberts.

I like to be nice to independent cinema as a general rule, and films like this are often put together by hook or by crook. It’s a scrapper’s game to get a small film made, and they often get financed based on the talent involved. But watching this trailer, it reminds me just a little too much of the sort of films that emerged in the mid-90′s that seemed to think that anyone could be a filmmaker, even if they had little craft or no story to tell. Hopefully it’s better than that.
