Here we are, folks. The first official trailer for Hesher has arrived, coming right off the heels of that unofficial trailer that came out about a month ago. I’ve been pretty excited about this movie since I first heard about it last year. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, however, my anticipation is at an all time high. Check the synopsis below!
After the tragic loss of his mother, T.J. (Devin Brochu) and his pill popping father (Rainn Wilson) are forced to live with T.J.’s elderly grandmother (Piper Laurie). A young man with a troubled past named Hesher (Joseph Gordon-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 (Natalie Portman) steps in to protect T.J., and becomes the object of T.J.’s fantasies, while Hesher moves into Grandma’s home. Although uninvited, he is somehow accepted.
What do you lot think? Does the idea of a long haired, metal head Joseph Gordon-Levitt entice you, or turn you off? Regardless, you have to love Natalie Portman wearing those huge glasses of her’s.[via TrailerAddict]
