In Sean Bakers' charming follow-up to the indie-hit ‘The Florida Project’ we follow the run-down pornstar, Mikey, who’s forced to leave Los Angeles behind and return to his hometown in Texas. With a slippery tongue and unconquerable energy, Mikey succeeds in flattering his ex-wife into taking him in, and she was the one that he originally started his career with. He lies and he cheats, but as always in the films of Sean Baker, the people on the outside of society are treated with warmth and empathy. ‘Red Rocket’ sets off with 1000 miles per hour, reminiscing of ‘Uncut Gems’, and the love for the people involved is contagious.
