Storyline

Three Christs tells the story of an extraordinary experiment that began in 1959 at Michigan's Ypsilanti State Hospital, where Dr. Alan Stone treated three paranoid schizophrenic patients who each believe they are Jesus Christ. Dr. Stone pioneers a simple, yet revolutionary treatment: instead of submitting the patients to electroshock, forced restraints and tranquilizers, he puts them in a room together to confront their delusions. What transpires is a darkly comic, intensely dramatic story about the nature of identity and the power of empathy.

overblown trailer makes me scared to watch
10 January 2020 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

Sorry to upset the studio shills down voting like crazy but that is one terrible trailer for what should be a vehicle for 4 great actors to act. Loud over emotive overblown music trying to make it out as some sort of thriller. Who are they aiming this at? I'll give it a go based on the actors alone but I really hope the makers didn't take fine performances and bury them under hollywood bombast.
