Ewan McGregor provides a behind-the-scenes look at Broad Green Pictures’ Last Days in the Desert in a new video featuring the actor talking about tackling the role of Jesus. Cast member Ciaran Hinds and writer/director Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, Mother and Child) also discuss the story, the characters and the world of this dramatic movie in the short Making Of featurette. Heading to theaters on May 13, 2016, the cast of Last Days in the Desert includes Ayelet Zurer (Daredevil) and Tye Sheridan (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse).
The Plot: Last Days in the Desert follows Jesus (Ewan McGregor) 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.
