Hesher Synopsis

Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit 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.

With $119 million banked in its first ten days it helped to bring this year's slumping sales performance up a bit, but even with the decent showing from the rest of this weekend's new entries the box office isn't out of the woods yet.

While screamingly funny at times, the movie Hesher is a film about pain and loss and no character displays this better than Paul Forney, played by Rainn Wilson.
