STARRING Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Bartha
WRITTEN BY Antonio Macia
DIRECTED BY Kevin Asch

A young Hasidic Jew (Zombieland‘s Jesse Eisenberg) agrees to become a drug mule for hire in late-1990s NYC. ”When I tell people the concept, they laugh because it almost sounds like a joke,” says the actor. ”I respectfully infiltrated the Hasidic communities in Brooklyn,” continues Eisenberg of his research for the R-rated film, which is inspired by a true story. ”They even gave me a bar mitzvah, which I never had.”
