by Macon Prickett - Apr 4, 2018

Johnny Galecki (TV's “Big Bang Theory) plays Paul Berger, an unemployed, down and out, heartbroken man searching for happiness.  When Paul sees an ad for a spiritual retreat promising to restart your life, he immediately signs up, hoping to cleanse himself and fix his broken life.  But after only a few days, he discovers the cleanse is releasing more than just everyday toxins… a lot more. Also starring Anna Friel, plus Oliver Platt and Academy Award® Winner Anjelica Huston (Best Supporting Actress, Prizzi's Honor, 1985) as the leaders of the retreat, THE CLEANSE is a darkly humorous, weird, and soulful fantasy that examines the inner demons in all of us.
