The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project), 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. Red Rocket premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, receiving praise from critics and festival-goers, and bringing awards buzz for the film and its actors.
