RED ROCKET (128 R)

RED ROCKET

The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.

WRITERS: Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch
CAST: Simon Rex, Bree Elrod, Suzanna Son


 

REVIEW

“Freewheeling and kissed by the magic hour light like Baker’s previous movies, Red Rocket is among the filmmaker’s best works.”
