Here's a trailer for the indie film Hesher, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man with a partial shirt allergy, and Natalie Portman as his big-spectacled potential love interest. Gordon-Levitt's character, Hesher, stumbles into the life of a lonely little boy with a depressed father (Rainn Wilson) and a daffy grandma. It's not entirely clear who Portman's character is, but we do know that she wears ugly glasses!

Both Portman and Gordon-Levitt are appealing actors, so it is a bit unfair to focus on their scraggly looks in this trailer, but it's probably the most remarkable thing about the clip. Well, also, this Hesher guy seems to like setting things on fire, and it is interesting to see Rainn Wilson in a dramatic role. Those things are of note. But mostly, yeah. Tommy Solomon needs a haircut and Queen Amidala needs new glasses. There's your movie!

Oh, and if you're interested in what "Hesher" means, Urban Dictionary explains that it's your cousin Ricky, basically.
