About the film:
Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Hesher's favorite things. And they are what Hesher brings into the lives of TJ and his father, Paul when he takes up residence in their 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.

Nice attempt at exiltcapion, Beau.I enjoyed the film and appreciated the studio's decision to avoid giving much away in all the advance marketing and promotion. The visual effects work beautifully, seamlessly transporting the audience into the world of the film/dream. All the ambiguity and complications don't seem all that impossible to grasp; one need only surrender and pay attention, lay back and enjoy the ride. Leave your linear brain at home and let your subconscious do the work for you. You know it's the very best part of you. Spin that top.Dream within a dream within a dream indeed.As Shakespeare's Prospero put itur revels now are ended. These our actors,As I foretold you, were all spirits, andAre melted into air, into thin air:And like the baseless fabric of this vision,The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,The solemn temples, the great globe itself,Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuffAs dreams are made on; and our little lifeIs rounded with a sleep
