​Three Christs Trailer Is Out, Starring Richard Gere And Peter Dinklage

IFC Films has released the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Three Christs, based on a true story from the late 1950s. The film is directed by Jon Avnet, starring an impressive ensemble of Richard Gere, Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins, Bradley Whitford, Charlotte Hope, Julianna Margulies, Kevin Pollak and James Monroe Iglehart.

This film originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017, and now will have its theatrical release in but has been awaiting release ever since - finally opening in January for those still interested.

Three Christs tells the story of an experiment that first began in 1959 at Michigan's Ypsilanti State Hospital, where Dr. Alan Stone treated three paranoid schizophrenic patients who each believe they are Jesus Christ.

As his first study, he takes on the particularly challenging case of three men—Joseph (Peter Dinklage), Leon (Walton Goggins), and Clyde (Bradley Whitford)—each of whom believes they are Jesus Christ. Hoping that by getting them together in the same room to confront their delusions he can break through to them, Dr. Stone begins a risky, unprecedented experiment that will push the boundaries of psychiatric medicine and leave everyone involved—including Dr. Stone himself—profoundly changed.

Based on a remarkable true story, Three Christs is a fascinating and moving look at one man’s journey into the deepest mysteries of the human mind.

What transpires is a darkly comic, intensely dramatic story about the nature of identity and the power of empathy.
