Preview: Jesus Henry Christ (2012)


An whip smart grade school kid seeks out his biological father and discovers a petri-dish-kin sister who reminds him of his mother.

  • Poster: B-


It's your typical indie poster design, which makes me less inspired, but the imagery, spacing and layout are at engaging enough to stand out in its field.

  • Trailer: B+


Toni Collette and Michael Sheen alone make this look like an appealing film. The opening of the trailer reminds me a bit of We Need to Talk About Kevin, but as the trailer goes in, it's clear that that isn't the proper comparison.

Oscar Prospects:

Like We Need to Talk About Kevin, I'm doubtful this film will gain much traction with Oscar voters.
