Ewan McGregor pulls off a convincing Jesus in ‘Last Days in the Desert’

Publishers discovered a long time ago that Jesus sells magazines, so it should be no surprise that one of the hottest tickets here at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival was the premiere of “Last Days in the Desert,” directed by Rodrigo Garcia and starring Ewan McGregor as both Jesus and Satan….Thematically, this becomes an intimate father-son film in which Jesus comes to the desert to seek counsel and guidance from his father before going to Jerusalem, and then meets another son who desperately wants to go to Jerusalem but is forbidden by his father to do so.
