THE HERO OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on June 30th 2017 the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present THE HERO, a drama about a once successful man’s struggle in his waning days to retain relevance in his art and in his life, long after the spotlight has left him.
Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging Western 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 (Nick 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 (Laura Prepon), and he attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter, Lucy (Krysten Ritter), all while searching for one final role to cement his legacy. [2017, USA, Runtime: 93 mins., Rated: R]
Katie-Walsh at “The Playlist” calls Elliot’s performance as an aging has-been his “best performance in a long time…possibly ever.” Come see an iconic actor (and voice) inhabit a character searching for meaning in the shadow of his impending mortality.
