02.20.11 by BJSprecher
One of the hits of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival was co-writer, director and producer Spencer Susser's Hesher, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman. A review on the Sundance website declared the movie a "multidimensional, darkly humorous film that exhibits an immensely talented storyteller at work," while Variety called Gordon-Levitt "undeniably charismatic" as the title character. Now, you can see what all of the buzz is about for yourself because the first theatrical trailer for Hesher has finally been released online.
Here is the synopsis of Hesher from the Sundance website:
TJ [Devin Brochu] is 13 years old. Two months ago, his mom was killed in an accident, leaving TJ and his grieving dad to move in with grandma to pick up the pieces. Hesher [Gordon-Levitt] is a loner. He hates the world—and everyone in it. He has long, greasy hair and homemade tattoos. He likes fire and blowing things up. He lives in his van—until he meets TJ.
Piper Laurie and Rainn Wilson also star. Hesher does not yet have a release date.
