About this item
Based on the story by best selling author Jonathan Lethem, and featuring a heartbreaking performance by rising star Paul Dano ("There Will Be Blood", "Little Miss Sunshine"), "Light And The Sufferer" follows two estranged brothers - Paul (Michael Esper) and Don aka Light (Dano) - as they carry out a scheme to defraud their drug dealer only to find their plans and lives forever changed by the appearance of a mysterious alien. Looking to leave their troubled past behind, Paul suggests to his younger brother Don that the two hop a plane and start a new life in sunny California. After a robbery intended to raise money for their trip goes awry, reality and fantasy collide as the brothers find themselves being pursued not only by the drug dealer they ripped off, but by a sufferer: one of the sphinx like creatures that roam the city, "trailing after people in trouble." What does the sufferer want and why is it following them? Has it come to help or hurt them? Is it a guardian angel or a death angel? Like a walking enigma that eludes the explanations of all who encounter it, the brothers' immutable new friend offers no easy answers.
