Jesse Eisenberg’s Holy Rollers: Release Date Announced! Check out The Movies First Poster

Crabtree Films, who are distributing Oscar and BAFTA nominee Jesse Eisenberg’s new film, Holy Rollers, are delighted to announce a UK theatrical release date of Friday 20th May 2011.

The film features explosive performances from Eisenberg and Justin Bartha (The Hangover, National Treasure) and also features Q-Tip and Ari Graynor.

Also Impawards have posted online the first uk poster for the movie which I do really like as it show’s Jesse Eisenberg’s face created out pills or there ‘merchandise’, hopefully soon we will get a new trailer too.

Synopsis

“Holy Rollers is inspired by actual events in the late nineties when Hasidic Jews were recruited as mules to smuggle ecstasy from Europe into the United States. Sam Gold (Jesse Eisenberg), a young Hasid from an Orthodox Brooklyn community reluctantly follows the path his family has chosen for him, awaiting a pending arranged marriage and studying to become a Rabbi. A charming neighbour, Yosef Zimmerman (Justin Bartha), senses Sam’s resistance and propositions him to transport ‘medicine’ for Jackie (Danny A. Abeckaser), an Israeli gangster and drug dealer, and his girlfriend, Rachel (Ari Graynor).

Sam quickly demonstrates his business skills to his boss, Jackie, who instantly takes him under his wing. Now exposed to the exciting and gritty worlds of the Manhattan and Amsterdam nightlife, Sam begins to spiral deeper into their detrimental lifestyle, experimenting with ecstasy and then falling for Rachel. As the business grows, Sam’s double life begins to rip his family apart and the community becomes suspicious of his illegal activities.”
