Lionsgate has announced that the drama HESHER, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman, Rainn Wilson, and Devin Brochu from director Spencer Susser, will be released on Blu-ray September 13, 2011. The film follows Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) who is a down and out loner (with really nasty and nappy hair) who sets up his residence in the garage of a grief stricken family and becomes an unlikely mentor to the young boy (Brochu). He also stars up with relationship with a local check-out girl played by Natalie Portman who also gives (supposedly, I can’t confirm) an amazing performance as a homely girl with low self-esteem.
HESHER opened in a limited release this past May and didn’t even hit the $1 million mark at the box office, but reviews were pretty positive. This could be one of those really great indie films that go unnoticed but are quite a delight to watch. Special features announced so far include:
- Deleted Scenes
- Cast and Crew Interviews
- Sketch Gallery
