Last night, The Playlist debuted some new images from the upcoming indie-drama, Hesher. The film, Spencer Susser’s directorial debut, stars Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception), Rainn Wilson (Juno), Devin Brochu (In the Valley of Elah) and Audrey Wasilewski (Year of the Dog).

Synopsis: In the wake of his mother’s recent death, thirteen year old TJ (Brochu) finds the bumpy road to emotional recovery made a bit easier to travel thanks to his friendship with Hesher (Levitt), a greasy-haired anarchist who lives in a van, sports homemade tattoos, and has a soft spot for explosions.

Hesher debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to conflicting reviews, but with the talent at hand, blending of comedy and darkly elements and the hope of a low-key, accessible indie-drama, it shouldn’t be too hard to attract audiences. I’m on board, nonetheless.

Check out the images below, courtesy of The Playlist:

Hesher doesn’t yet have a release date, but with a panel expected to be present at Comic-Con, expect an announcement imminently.
