Loud music.  Pornography. Burning shit to the ground.  These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things, and all to the soundtrack of Metallica and Motorhead.  And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devon Brochu) and his father Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in the 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.

The Music of Hesher:

-The Shortest Straw: Metallica

-Fight Fire with Fire: Metallica

-Anesthesia: Metallica

-Battery: Metallica

-Motorbreath: Metallica

-Rock Out: Motorhead

-A Teenager in Love: Dion & the Belmonts

-The End of Time: The Hit Crew

-Deeply: Buddy Stuart

Featuring an all-star award-winning cast, Lionsgate debuts Hesher on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, Digital Download and On Demand this September. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) leads the dark comedy in the title role, an unconventional loner who is more interested in pyromania than finding a job.  Also starring Rainn Wilson (TV’s “The Office”), Devon Brochu (In the Valley of Elah) and Oscar® winner Natalie Portman (Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, Black Swan, 2010), this dark comedy meets fairy tale was a film festival favorite – an Official Selection of South by Southwest, and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2010.  Hailed as a “delectably anarchic black comedy…refreshingly original” (New York Post), the film features the music of Metallica. Hesher, featuring deleted scenes, outtakes, cast and crew interviews, a sketch gallery and more, will be available on September 13th for the suggested retail price of $28.98 on DVD and $29.99 on Blu-ray Disc.
