The Hero – (Afternoon Movie)

A Movie in the Afternoon. Every Day.

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.

"Elliott's a master of understatement, and just watching him stare off into the distance, mulling mortality with a weathered cowboy stance, is true cinematic Zen."

Sara Stewart New York Post

"[Elliott] remains genuine and absorbing throughout. The supporting performances are right on target."

Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press

"Elliott does some of his finest work in one of the best movies in his career, a drama that feels like a biography."

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
