Clip From Hesher With Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Motorhead

This is, I believe, the first clip from Spencer Susser’s Hesher to hit the web. The film played at Sundance and, to be honest, the reviews were fair to middling at best.

You never know, we might love it, you and I.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film, from its official site:

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.
