Footage & still of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as pyro in Hesher

01.19.2010

A film we are certainly keeping our eye on is HESHER starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

In fact, it is actually one that Chris Bumbray will catching during his visit to the Sundance Film Festival.

Lucky for us, Sundance has posted a "Meet the Artist" video with director Spencer Susser. The video contains new footage from the film that co-stars Natalie Portman and Rainn Wilson. There was also a still of Joseph Gordon-Levitt standing in front of a burning table via Twitch.

Here is the synopsis of the film and check out the video below:

Hesher is the story of a family struggling to deal with loss and the anarchist who helps them do it—in a very unexpected way.

TJ is 13 years old. Two months ago, his mom was killed in an accident, leaving TJ and his grieving dad to move in with grandma to pick up the pieces. Hesher is a loner. He hates the world—and everyone in it. He has long, greasy hair and homemade tattoos. He likes fire and blowing things up. He lives in his van—until he meets TJ.

I totally forgot about this. I recently met Gordon-Levitt at an event for independent film and he was by far one of the most cordial celeb types I've met since I've been in LA. This one has my support.

sounds really good

but also:
"He likes fire and blowing things up" - kinda sounds like Joker :)
But this movie looks and feels like a more than solid indie drama

This guy sounds pretty solid. Everything considered, this would be my number movie to see if I were attending SD myself.
