    • Synopsis
    • Fresh out of prison, smooth-talking petty thief Jesus Quintana (John Turturro, reprising his iconic Big Lebowski character) is ready to roll with his best friend Petey (Bobby Cannavale) riding shotgun. But first they need some wheels. A vintage muscle car parked in front of an upscale salon catches Jesus’s eye and the pair embark on a no-holds-barred joyride — until the car’s indignant owner (Jon Hamm) catches up with them, wounding Petey. Fleeing the scene with fiercely free spirited hairdresser Marie (Audrey Tautou) in tow, Jesus and Petey continue their road trip in a series of stolen cars, cementing their partnership with an epic petty crime spree and a three-way romance.

      Along the way, they visit Jesus’s prostitute mother (Sônia Braga), hide out in a posh beach house, go bowling, and hunker down in a cabin in the woods. A darkly funny, boundary-breaking tour of rural New York’s backroads, The Jesus Rolls is written and directed by Turturro.
