Jesse Eisenberg Is A Good Hasidic Jew Gone Bad In The Holy Rollers Trailer
The fact that Holy Rollers stars Jesse Eisenberg is good enough for me, but a good trailer doesnít hurt. Vulture caught the filmís theatrical trailer floating around YouTube and itís pretty convincing. It shows Eisenberg in full Hasidic garb, as Sam Gold, a young Jewish guy growing up in Brooklyn troubled by his fatherís business woes. When a buddy offers him a shot to achieve the financial success his father couldnít, Sam accepts. The problem is, that opportunity involves smuggling Ecstasy between New York and Amsterdam.
The film also stars Justin Bartha as Yosef Zimmerman, the man responsible for hooking up Sam in the first place. Thereís also the always-memorable Ari Graynor, who takes the role of Rachel, the girlfriend of a big time dealer and the lady who steals Samís heart. Following its Sundance premiere, Holy Rollers was picked up by First Independent Features, so you can get all the details when it hits theaters this summer. For now, check out the trailer below.
