Henry Fool

Henry Fool

Synopsis

Hartley’s epic is looser and more expansive than his previous films. Henry Fool is an ex-convict sex offender; a chain smoking, beer guzzling, pseudo-intellectual egomaniac. He opens up a magical world of literature to Simon, a garbage man who turns his hand to writing the great American poem. As Simon’s controversial career takes off, Henry’s past catches up with him.
