What's it about? According to articles, 'The Jesus Rolls' will follow Jesus Quintana after he is released from prison after being 'framed on paedophile charges'. The official synopsis of the film describes it like this:

A trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen'

Who's in it? Tuturro, Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, JB Smoove, Susan Sarandon, and Pete Davidson.
