Brett Haley, critically acclaimed director of I’ll See You In My Dreams, returns with The Hero, a bittersweet, sharply observed exploration of ageing. With an impressive cast that includes Sam Elliot (The Big Lebowski, Tombstone), Nick Offerman (The Founder, Parks & Recreation), Laura Prepon (Orange Is The New Black, The Girl on The Train) and Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones, Breaking Bad), The Hero will be released on digital download on 8th January 2018, and on DVD 29th January 2018.
Lee Hayden (Elliott) is a Western movie icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him. He spends his days reliving old glories and smoking too much weed with his former co-star-turned-dealer, Jeremy (Offerman), until a surprise cancer diagnosis brings his priorities into sharp focus. He soon strikes up an exciting, contentious relationship with stand-up comic, Charlotte (Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy.
