Like Holy Rollers, But True

I didn’t get a chance to see Holy Rollers, the movie about Hasidic kids who get involved smuggling drugs into the US, but it certainly looks good.

It’s supposed to be based on a true story…and now there’s some great material for a sequel. According to AP:

JERUSALEM — Police say they’ve arrested a pair of ultra-Orthodox Jewish men suspected of trying to smuggle $1 million of pure cocaine into Israel from Brazil.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Thursday that the two former seminary students, aged 21 and 20, were stopped at Israel’s international airport overnight.

He says police officers found about 22 pounds (10 kilograms) of cocaine in their luggage.

Maybe they could claim to just be big fans of the film?
