The Hero

Opens Jul 14, 2017

The legendary Sam Elliott stars as Lee Hayden, an aging Western movie star with a gorgeous voice. It's been decades since Hayden starred in a great movie. Now he relives his past alongside his friend and former co-star (Nick Offerman). As he confronts mortality, Hayden finds himself striking up a relationship with a stand-up comic (Laura Prepon) and attempting to form a bond with his daughter (Krysten Ritter). The Hero was written specifically for Elliott by writer-director Brett Haley (I'll See You in My Dreams).

"A tender, touching drama. It reminds you that it's easy to take a talent like Elliott for granted, until someone hands him the sort of role that lets this stoic pillar of hypermasculinity play the scales. You will almost assuredly leave The Hero knowing that he is a bona fide national treasure." (David Fear, Rolling Stone)
