Imaginary Heroes - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Starring Sigourney Weaver, Jeff Daniels, Emile Hirsch, and Michelle Williams, "Imaginary Heroes" is a funny and poignant coming of age story in which the fa├žade of an ordinary American family is peeled back to reveal that nothing is as it seems. Tim Travis (Hirsch) is walking through his life like it's a bad dream. His mother Sandy (Weaver) is the master of the Travis house - with a healthy drug habit, a decade long grudge, and a secret that is literally tearing her apart. His father Ben (Daniels) is a shell of the man he once was, crippled by circumstance and blind to the mistakes of his past. But in typical American style, the Travises aren't depressed - they're living their lives in a forlorn haze. As painful revelations are made that threaten to divide the family, moments of laughter and truth provide the salve that ultimately bring them closer together.

MOVIE REVIEW

A haunting yet darkly funny drama, "Imaginary Heroes" takes a look at the lives of a middle class family who fall into a pit of desperation after one of their sons commits suicide. Sigourney Weaver, Emile Hirsch, Jeff Daniels, and Michelle Williams all star in this interesting and offbeat tale.
