Initial selections have been announced for the 10th Tribeca Film Festival, which will take place from April 20 to May 1 at various venues in lower Manhattan. A complete list of films will be announced on March 14. Among the films to be shown is Dennis Lee’s “Jesus Henry Christ”, about a 10-year-old boy genius’ search for his biological father, starring Toni Collette and Michael Sheen. The first two stills from the film can be found below.

Precocious doesn’t even begin to describe Henry James Hermin, a petri dish child who writes rabble-rousing manifestos on the nature of truth… at age 10. This boy-genius misfit’s world turns upside down when – to the dismay of the doting single mother who raised him – he embarks on a search for his biological father. Toni Collette and Michael Sheen star alongside bright newcomers Jason Spevack and Samantha Weinstein in this charming comedy that beams with off-the-wall humor and visual flair.
