Not enough rock to fuel “Hesher”

The Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Natalie Portman driven film, “Hesher”, was released May 13th in limited theaters. Coming out with mixed reviews and a not so well-cut trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRfiUfv9NWY), it doesn’t seem like the film is going to do well as I hoped it was with only bringing in $0.1 million so far…but then again, it does have my future wife, Natalie Portman, so I’ll probably check it out.

Synopsis: Loud music. Pornography. Burning **** to the ground. These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things. And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devin Brochu) and his father, Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in their garage uninvited. Grief-stricken by the loss of TJ’s mother in a car accident, Paul can’t muster the strength to evict the strange squatter, and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher’s anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.
