Since I’m obsessed with that National Geographic show “Locked Up Abroad“, I decided to watch a recommendation from netflix: Holy Rollers. It came out this year and premiered at Sundance–but apparently it only grossed $302,886.* I’m about halfway through the Jewish Drug-Smuggling movie, and I’m quite enjoying Jesse Eisenberg’s(Social Network) performance as the naive protagonist. And, there’s a really hot guy in it- Justin Bartha (The Hangover), who plays the bad-boy neighbor.
In Brooklyn, a youth from an Orthodox Jewish community is lured into becoming an Ecstasy dealer by his pal who has ties to an Israel drug cartel.
I can’t recommend the movie as I have finished it yet. But, I love the premise and it’s based on true events. Check out the trailer below.
