Unlike some members of the Jerusalem community in AD29, Clarence is not the most spiritual of citizens. Seemingly unmoved by Jesus Christ’s message of peace and brotherly love, Clarence sees a perfect window of opportunity to take advantage of a nascent celebrity culture. But at what cost to his eternal soul?
Following his kinetic, hugely enjoyable all-Black frontier action drama The Harder They Fall
, Jeymes Samuel returns with the most original take on the story of Christ since Monty Python’s Life of Brian
. And playing Clarence, LaKeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Judas and the Black Messiah, Sorry to Bother You
) delivers a star performance cementing his reputation as one of Hollywood’s most compelling performers. A work of huge ambition and style, The Book of Clarence
wins hands down as the most punk, political, and hugely fun film you’ll see this year.
