In the movie Three Christs, set in the early 1950s, a psychiatrist named Dr. Alan Stone (Richard Gere) takes on the case of three men who all believe they are Jesus Christ. The men, Joseph (Peter Dinklage), Leon (Walton Goggins), and Clyde (Bradley Whitford), have all been institutionalized in the Ypsilanti State Hospital in Michigan for their delusions.

Dr. Stone, who specializes in treating patients with schizophrenia, is intrigued by the unique case of the three men who all share the same delusion. He believes that by bringing them together and creating a community, he can help them confront their delusions and potentially lead them towards a cure.

As Dr. Stone spends more time with the three men, he begins to uncover their individual stories and the events in their lives that may have led to their delusions. Joseph, who is the most charismatic and seemingly in control of his delusions, believes he is the son of God and that he has been sent to Earth to save humanity. Leon, on the other hand, claims to be the messiah but also believes he is a womanizer and has a volatile temper. Finally, Clyde believes he is Jesus Christ but is plagued by violent visions and is prone to crying fits where he laments that he cannot save everyone.

As the story unfolds, we see the bond that develops between the three men as they open up to each other and share their experiences. Dr. Stone, too, becomes emotionally invested in their progress, seeing them not as just patients, but as individuals who have been failed by society and the mental health system.

Throughout the movie, we see Dr. Stone's struggle to find a balance between his professional responsibilities and his empathy towards his patients. He becomes frustrated with the hospital staff who insist on medication as the only solution and is haunted by flashbacks of his own father's struggles with mental illness.

The movie culminates in a poignant scene where the three men are allowed to attend a party outside the hospital walls, where they are finally able to interact with other people who are not patients. It is during this scene that we see the true effects of their delusions on their lives - they have lost touch with reality and have been isolated from the world for so long that they struggle to make connections with others.

Overall, Three Christs is a thought-provoking movie that raises important questions about the treatment of mental illness and the role of empathy in patient care. Richard Gere, Peter Dinklage, Bradley Whitford, and Walton Goggins all deliver incredible performances in their respective roles, bringing depth and nuance to the characters they portray. The movie is emotional, heart-wrenching, and ultimately hopeful. It is a must-watch for anyone interested in exploring the complexities of the human mind and the power of human connection.

Three Christs is a 2020 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 57 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 39.
