FilmWeek Marquee: ‘Cocaine Bear,’ ‘Jesus Revolution’ and ‘Navalny’

Published February 24, 2023 at 9:39 AM PST
Johnathan Roumie stands in a barn-like building with wooden rafters visible behind him. Roumie's arms are raised almost shoulder height and are outstretched to his sides. He wears a loose white long sleeve that has a v-neck embroidered with black and orange filigree. Perfectly lined with the v-neck collar of his short hangs a beaded necklace with a cross pendent. Over the shirt is a black vest that has gold embroidered flowers across the chest. Roumie smiles largely. He has a long scraggly beard and shoulder length hair that falls in loose waves. He is portraying the American Evangelist Lonnie Frisbee who was a key figure in the Jesus Movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
