Hesher is an independent film from Writer/Director Spencer Susser that stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson, and Natalie Portman. Susser is mostly known working on commercials and Music videos -- Hesher is his first feature film and he's been working on it for four years now.
The film has found it way in The Sundance Film Festival 2010 in-competition lineup and this is a film I am looking forward to seeing when I am up there.
Here are the full details and photos:
After the tragic loss of his Mother, T.J., Along with his pill popping father (Wilson), are forced to live with his elderly Grandmother. A young man with with a troubled past named Hesher (Levitt) assumes the role as both mentor and tormentor, leading T.J into troubles he could never have imagined. A young grocery clerk named Nicole (Portman) steps in to protect T.J from a vicious attack, and becomes the object of T.J’s fantasies. And Hesher moves into Grandma’s home, although uninvited, he is somehow accepted.
