“Hellion,” which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, will screen at this year’s SXSW. Ahead of its screening, you can watch the film’s opening scene below.
Sundance Selects will distribute the film, written and directed by Kat Candler.
“Hellion” follows 13-year-old Jacob Wilson (Josh Wiggins in his feature film debut). Obsessed with heavy metal, dirt bike racing and partaking in the occasional act of vandalism with his band of delinquents, Jacob’s behavior has begun to raise concerns around town, especially when it starts to involve his younger brother Wes. Jacob’s father, Hollis (Aaron Paul), must deal with his problematic son while navigating the heart-breaking emotional fallout of his wife’s recent death.
