Indie Film from Brazil
Watch the quirky Brazilian comedy Jesus Kid, when you want unique entertainment for a fun movie night at home.
When I first saw the title of this indie film, I wasn’t sure what to expect.
This is a fictional movie about an author who has written about a fictional gunslinger named “Jesus Kid.”
And in this film that fictional gunslinger appears as a vision to become a very real part of the story of this writer.
It is entertaining and one of a kind.
Jesus Kid was made in Brazil, so the dialogue is in Portuguese.
There are English subtitles, so it is easy to follow along without knowing the original language.
It isn’t rated, but is best for adults and older teens who will be able to read the subtitles and understand the dark comedy.
Release Date 7/5/22
Eugênio, the author of a once-popular Western novel, has fallen on hard times.
When sales of his books go from bad to worse, his publisher pressures him to ghostwrite a political biography or else…
Instead, Eugênio accepts an offer to work on a screenplay in complete isolation for three months.
But while holed up inside a luxury hotel, Eugênio begins seeing visions of his most famous creation, the gunslinger “Jesus Kid.”
