NOMINEE · PALME D’OR · CANNES

Everything’s bigger in Texas. The audacious new film from indie writer-director, Sean Baker (The Florida Project, Tangerine, SWIFF’16) is a darkly funny, and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler.

Mikey (Simon Rex) never misses an opportunity to show off his five AVN Awards, the Oscars of the porn industry. But his days of success are long gone, and Mikey is left anything but welcome in his depressed, post-industrial hometown of Texas City. A charismatic force of destruction who exploits the goodwill of everyone around him, Mikey sets his sights on girlish donut-shop worker Strawberry (breakout scene stealer Suzanna Son).

Part hangout movie, part thriller, Red Rocket paints an astonishing portrait of a narcissist that adds to Baker’s evolving tapestry of the margins of modern America.

“An adult American pastoral. This is vivid, real-life film-making.” - The Guardian
