Last Days in the Desert

Ewan McGregor is Jesus in this imagined chapter from the Messiah's 40 days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, Jesus struggles with the Devil (also McGregor) over the fate of a family in crisis.

"Director Rodrigo Garcia reimagines Christ’s last days of fasting in the desert as he walks back to civilization. In the midst of the harsh landscape, fatigued and hallucinating, Christ is met by the Devil, who is eager to test and tempt the weary traveler... By focusing on Christ's fallibility and innocence, new dimensions of the prophet and the man create a fascinating character study.

"But Christ’s real test comes when he befriends a family on his travels and is caught up in a dispute that forces a powerful confrontation with his own fate." (Sundance Institute)

The temptation of Christ in the desert forms the heart of this painterly film – but it is a meditation on fathers and sons as well as Father and Son.

A beautifully made, thematically opaque rendition of a secular version of a holy man’s time in the wilderness.
