The Hero - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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.

MOVIE REVIEW

When you’re old, you die. When you’re famous, you can still land hot women. Those are two stories to be learned in the excellent drama The Hero, about an ailing actor who ponders life and tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
