Ewan McGregor is on the podcast.

File_000Tripp got to chat with Ewan and director Rodrigo Garcia about the movie Last Days in the Desert.

Then he got to talk it up with producer and Texan Bonnie Curtis about her own spiritual experience of making a Jesus film. She is #AwesomeSauce.

The official film description is:

Last Days in the Desert follows Jesus (Ewan McGregor) in an imagined chapter from his forty days of fasting and praying in the desert. On his way out of the wilderness, he struggles with the Devil, also played by McGregor, over the last_days_in_desertfate of an ordinary family in crisis, setting for himself a dramatic test with distinctly human conflicts.

After the interview, Tripp and Nathan unpack some of the themes from the movie:

  • The temptations and Jesus’ identity
  • Nietzsche’s critique of Christianity
  • The difference between being cured, and being healed
  • Divine flatus

Plus, Tripp finally gets to tell his “Messianic Secret” joke on the podcast. Last Days in the Desert opens in select theaters this Friday, May 13th. Check out their website to find where, or to request to host a showing in your town.
