“The Big Lebowski” introduced the world to John Turturro’s Jesus Quintana, and now, the character is ready to roll again in the first look at the new film “Going Places.”
The premise of “Going Places” is inspired by French filmmaker Bertrand Blier’s 1974 “Les Valseuses.” It revolves around a three smalltime crooks and is being billed as an irreverent, sexually charged comedy. The tale evolves into a surprising love story as some of the characters’ flippant attitudes backfire time and again, and they wind up inadvertently performing good deeds.
After the trio makes enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, they find themselves fleeing from law and society as their unlikely bond strengthens.
