ABOUT THE FILM
The Hero stars the legendary Sam Elliott as an aging actor confronting mortality in the moving new film from writer/director Brett Haley (I'll See You in My Dreams). Lee Hayden (Elliott) is a 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. The Hero is a beautiful and poignant celebration of life and the legacies we all leave behind.
