The Beer Garden of Gethsemane

While the open air of City Walk, Canberra is a nice place to play chess, you often see the weirdest things. Today for example a bearded man cam into the beer garden at King O'Malley's pub, pushing a shopping trolley that had a full size crucifix in it. I quickly looked around for a squad of Roman guards (Easter is near after all), but instead he was being escorted by a film crew. After some fiddling about they began to film a scene where he loudly harangued the patrons about "eating a drinking, while someone is dieing alone". I began to think this may have been an advertisement ("Why die alone, when you can drink at ....") but I was told they were filming a movie.
While I'll probably give it a miss, I hope someone can tell me when it comes out.
