Jesus Henry Christ Trailer

"I'm his mother, you're nothing but a test tube filled with sperm!" E1 Entertainment has debuted the official trailer on Apple for the indie comedy Jesus Henry Christ, written and directed by Dennis Lee (Fireflies in the Garden), starring Toni Collette and Jason Spevack as her son Henry James Herman, a precocious 10-year-old kid who sets out on a quest to find out who his sperm-donor father was. The trailer reveals that it's Michael Sheen, who actually has some sort of history with Collette's character anyway, and all the fun begins. There are some interesting fantastical elements to this with the Post-It notes, but it looks charming.

Watch the official trailer for Dennis Lee's Jesus Henry Christ, in high def via Apple:

Precocious doesn't even begin to describe Henry James Herman, a petri dish child who writes rabble-rousing manifestos on the nature of truth… at age 10. This boy-genius misfit's world turns upside down when, to the dismay of the single mother who raised him, he embarks on a search for his biological father.

Jesus Henry Christ is both written & directed by Chicago-born filmmaker Dennis Lee, a Columbia graduate, also of the movie Fireflies in the Garden previously. This is a feature version of his short, Jesus Henry Christ, from 2003. This was filmed up in Canada back in 2010. E1 Entertainment is bringing Jesus Henry Christ to limited theaters starting on April 20th this spring. For more updates, visit their Facebook page.

  • This movie is the DEVIL. Horrendous, saw it at Tribeca last year. Easily one of the worst of 2011. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

       I thought it looked very sweet... :/ I'm gonna see it cause everyone loved Like Crazy, but it just ended up being about douches cheating on each other. So I'm not gonna be too hasty to take your word on it.
    • I just wish you'd open up and tell us straight. I mean, was it good? Should we see it?
    • Fyl
      You sound like a frustrated film maker that has not had any breaks. What didnt u like?
      • That is quite the assumption. The press screening of this was disastrous, everyone seemed to hate it. You can read our review here -

      Yep. I left the solitary comment squatting at the bottom of your worthless review page. Don't worry, I devoted plenty of love to it.
  • Scotty97
    I was hoping for a little more of Mark Millar's "Chosen" vibe, but this looks plenty fun and engaging. Doesn't matter to me what the EiC of a page I've never heard of thinks. 
  • Roxanne
    I saw it at Tribeca and thought it was darling.  Loved the kid actors in it and thought Toni Collette and Michael Sheen were both fantastic.  Really happy to see it getting released!
  • Looks pretty funny. I'll watch this one with the wife methinks.
  • Stockjonebills
    Looks great
  • I love Toni Collette and this looks amazing, however it just makes me miss United States of Tara and get angry at SHO again!!!!
