Hesher is an upcoming drama directed and written by Spencer Susser and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman, and Rainn Wilson. First screened at the Sundance Film Festival January 22, 2010, the film has yet to have a release date in the United States.



After the tragic loss of his mother, T.J., along with his pill popping father (Wilson), are forced to live with his elderly Grandmother. A young man with a troubled past named Hesher (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 (Portman) steps in to protect T.J. from a vicious attack, and becomes the object of T.J.’s fantasies. And Hesher moves into Grandma’s home, although uninvited, he is somehow accepted. [1]



Writer/director Spencer Susser has been working in commercials and music videos, but has finally completed his first feature film Hesher starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rainn Wilson, and Natalie Portman. Susser has been developing Hesher for the last four years, as well as a feature film adaptation of Sarah Jane.
