Hesher (2010)

Very crude and very sensitive film about loss and honesty. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays an anarchist headbanger who invades the lives of a boy, his father and grandmother. He violently shakes up their sorrow (the boy's mother has recently died) and spurs them onto a path of recovery.

It's a fun film, though many parts will make you cringe. The message of redemption and healing is so poignant that it really does capture the "beauty from ashes" theme from OT prophets.
