Down and out in Los Angeles, ex-porn star Mikey Saber returns to his hometown of Texas City, where his estranged wife and mother-in-law live. But just as this dysfunctional family seems to be making things work, Mikey becomes smitten with Strawberry, a teenager working at a local doughnut shop.
Sean Baker continues to prove himself the chronicler-in-chief of life on America’s fringes with this provocative tale of deluded ambition. Pointedly set on the eve of Trump’s election, and with a magnetic lead in ex-porn star Simon Rex, Red Rocket is a blistering critique of the cult of personality.
