Based on the critically acclaimed book of short stories by Denis Johnson, Jesus' Son chronicles the life of a young man, known only as Fuckhead (Billy Crudup), as he careens through the underbelly of American culture. Often addicted to heroin or alcohol, he nevertheless greets life with compassion, humor, grace, and hope. Told as a remembrance of a time gone by, FH recounts a few years of his life in the mid-west, introducing us to the people he knew, the woman he loved. Starkly real yet gorgeously hallucinatory, Fuckhead's stories move through time ignoring chronology, but they're far from aimless, painting a picture of a lost soul clearly on his way to recovery and redemption.
