Sean, an Irish immigrant to America, returning from military service in Afghanistan, finds his heart and mind in disarray. He befriends Ike (Will Oldham, in his first leading role since OLD JOY), a strong willed Evangelical Christian, who endeavors to ensure the fragile Sean’s salvation. A meditation on mutual need and frailty, NEW JERUSALEM explores the allure and limitations of modern utopian belief. “A hypnotic experience, one that’ll bury itself in the brain and refuse to leave.” – Christopher Bell, The Playlist.
