Last Days in the Desert, a new film by writer/director Rodrigo Garcia and starring Ewan McGregor, is an evocative meditation on the humanness of Jesus. Premiering in select cities May 13, the movie follows Jesus in an imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, he struggles with the Devil, also played by McGregor, over the fate of an ordinary family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test with distinctly human conflicts.
Tomorrow, we’ll share an interview with McGregor and Garcia here on the blog. Today, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the movie, below. You can watch more clips and a trailer from the movie at the Patheos Movie Club here!
