A bullied little boy grieving the death of his mother strikes up an unlikely friendship with a Metallica-loving anarchist in this tender yet unsentimental childhood drama. In the wake of his mother's recent death, 13-year-old TJ (Devin Brochu) finds the bumpy road to emotional recovery all the more difficult due to the dual facts that he's bullied at school and that his father (Rainn Wilson) has become a vacant pill-head. Just when it seems like things couldn't possibly get any worse, TJ strikes up an unusual friendship with Hesher (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greasy-haired anarchist with a beat-up van, homemade tattoos, and a soft spot for explosions. The next thing TJ knows, Hesher is sitting in his living room and watching porn on the family television. Later, though, just as TJ summons the courage to pursue a friendship with Nicole (Natalie Portman), a kindly grocery-store clerk who came to his aid in a time of need, an explosive discovery threatens to propel the embattled teen down a dangerous path of self-destruction.

On the whole, I rather liked this movie. I thought the plot was good, I thought the acting was really good, and the music within it was awesome! (Metallica, Motorhead, etc...good stuff). What I really didn't care much for in this movie is all of the abbrasive and crude language throughout it. A little bit is one thing, but there comes a point when it begins to become too much...and the language in this movie is blatant, awful, and shall we say creative sometimes too. Did not much care for that. If it hadn't been for that, this movie would have gotten a higher rating in my book. It's a good one time watch in my opinion...just be aware that there is a lot of harsh language in it. If that doesn't bother you, then have at it, because that aside it's a pretty good movie, but if it does sort of bother you, then you'll have to decide for yourself whether it's something you want to watch or not.
