37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024


Under the loose supervision of his depressed father Hollis, 13-year-old Jacob Wilson has begun to raise concerns around town with his obsessive heavy metal, dirt bike racing, and occasional acts of vandalism. When Jacob starts to involve his younger brother Wes, local authorities catch wind of this increasingly volatile situation resulting in Wes taken into custody by his Aunt Pam (Lewis). In Wes’s absence, Jacob becomes increasingly obsessed with two things: winning a local motorcross championship and getting his brother back. With a scorching performance by Josh Wiggins and heart-wrenchingly raw turns by Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Juliette Lewis, Hellion paints the powerful portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution.
