An anarchist (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) shakes things up after moving -- uninvited -- into the garage of a troubled youth (Devin Brochu) and the kid's father (Rainn Wilson).
May 11, 2011 · Hesher materializes in the life of young T.J. (Devin Brochu) and moves into T.J.'s house. The film makes no attempt to explain much about who he is, where he came from, or precisely what he thinks about T.J.'s family. At first he seems possibly an imaginary friend for the kid, but then we realize he's quite real, all right.

I love the film, the character of Hesher, and the fascinating and entertaining yarn told by writer/director Spencer Susser. I feel that the script is a genius piece of writing. Full Review
Oct 14, 2010 · A movie about loss for audiences who would like to firebomb the Hallmark Channel, "Hesher" enters with a metal riff and, even when it's time to, can't quite bring itself to go soft.
Hesher is a strained and oh so indie comedy-drama that feels far too forced to really work. It subverts the well worn formula of a stranger enriching the lives of a group in need by introducing a disruptive and destructive man into a recently bereaved family.
