Hesher 
A different kind of Hero!
2/4 stars

This is the tale of a grieving boy, TJ, who is living with his chronically depressed father (Rainn Wilson) and struggling to deal with a rather nasty high school bully. His mother has recently passed away in a car accident and his stoic grandmother (Piper Laurie) tries to be the glue to hold all together but she is slowly losing that battle. He encounters an unpleasant and homeless Hesher who doesn't care about anyone or anything, uses foul language, does drugs but in some strange mystical way Hesher succeeds in bringing the father and son closer together than they ever could have been before. By using the most unusual tools, violence and ferociousness Hesher forces the family to deal with their pain and grief. Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives a solid performance, Devin Brochu was quite good and Natalie Portman is almost unrecognizable here as the girl from the supermarket whom TJ develops a crush on. Very different from what I expected initially but nonetheless a touching story about a family falling apart.
