Director Jon Avnet rings in the new year with host Robin Milling to chat about his new film Three Christs. Currently playing in theaters it stars the triumverate threat of Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins and Bradley Whitford as paranoid schizophrenics who each believe they're Jesus Christ. Led by the calming and spiritual guidance of Richard Gere who portrays the doctor that saves them from certain dangerous medical solutions, and instead treats them with reason.

Avnet shares stories about his long-standing friendship with Gere which dates back to working together on Red Corner in 1997, and how they collaborated on bringing this story to the screen. Avnet - who also co-wrote the screenplay - tells Robin he did his homework, working with reknowned pyschoanalyst Dr. Aaron Stern to get all the details right. He also relates some of the happy accidents that occurred while filming this important cautionary tale about medical abuse.
