Fictionalizing LeBeouf’s ascent to stardom, and subsequent crash-landing into rehab and recovery, Har’el casts Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place) and Lucas Hedges as Otis Lort, navigating different stages in a frenetic career. Labeouf takes on the therapeutic challenge of playing a version of his own father, an ex-rodeo clown and a felon.
Dancer-singer Fka twigs makes her feature-film debut, playing neighbour and kindred spirit to the younger Otis in their garden-court motel home. Har’el’s feature narrative debut is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between filmmaker and subject, exploring art as medicine and imagination as hope through the life and times of a talented, traumatized performer who dares to go in search of himself.
