Opening on May 21, Holy Rollers is about a Hasidic Jew (Jesse Eisenberg) in 1990 New York City, who gets involved in dealing ecstasy. And what better cover for selling pills are Payot? “Caught between life as a smuggler and the path back to God, Sam (Eisenberg) and his worlds begin to unravel.” The story is inspired by true events.

The movie looks just OK, but it is nice to see that Eisenberg is keeping his indie roots. Holy Rollers also stars Justin Bartha, Ari Graynor, Danny A. Abeckaser and Q-Tip.
