HESHER DVD And BLURAY Release Details


Release Date : 09/13/2011

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.

Loud music.  Pornography. Burning s*%t to the ground.  These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things.  And they are what Hesher (Gordon-Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Brochu) and his father Paul (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.
