You’ve heard the man: don’t let your granny go alone, beware of the granny killer!
The movie Hesher is written and directed by Spencer Susser and is starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson, and Natalie Portman. The film revolves around a young boy (Devin Brochu) who befriends a really strange dude (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who likes fire and blowing things up.
“Young boy TJ is lonely but then one day he meets Hesher. He hates the world and everyone in it. He has long greasy hair and homemade tattoos. He is malnourished and smokes a lot of cigarettes. He likes fire and blowing things up and turns Tj’s world upsidedown.”
Unfortunately there’s still no release date yet for the movie Hesher. Let’s hope it’s for soon because the film looks great!

“T.J, a 13 year old boy and his Father, both devastated by the tragic loss of the Mother/Wife, are now living with the elderly Grandma. On his way to school one day, T.J has a chance encounter with Hesher, a late 20’s year old with a troubled past. Hesher assumes a role as both mentor and tormentor, leading T.J into troubles he could never have imagined. Nicole, a young grocery clerk trying to make ends meet steps in to protect T.J from a vicious attack, T.J becomes enamored with Nicole, only to have his fantasies destroyed by Hesher. Hesher moves into Grandma’s home, although uninvited, he is somehow accepted.”
I can definitely imagine Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this role: his performance is going to be outstanding, I’m sure of it! Hope that the movie Hesher will get a wide release so I can see it!
