The Hero

In Brett Haley’s comedy, an aging, golden-voiced Western icon Sam Elliott), with his best performances are decades behind him, spends his days reliving old glories and smoking too much weed with his former-co-star-turned-dealer (Nick Offerman). A surprise diagnosis brings his priorities into sharp focus, and he strikes up a relationship with a stand-up comic (Laura Prepon), attempts to reconnect with his estranged daughter(Krysten Ritter) and looks for one final role.
