From director Sean Baker and starring Simon Rex, Bree Elrod and Suzanna Son.
From the mind of The Florida Project, stars actor, comedian, and rapper Simon Rex as a former adult film star trying to make a fresh start when he returns to his Texas hometown.
Writer-director Baker's audacious new film starring Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance is a darkly, funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
The Hollywood Reporter's awards columnist believes that lead actor Simon Rex and supporting actress Suzanna Son, who both have compelling personal narratives and give standout performances in the film, are likely to contend for end-of-the-year accolades.
