Fifteen Ways of Looking at Garrett Hedlund
A Heartfelt Unpeeling Process

 

I

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.
—Wallace Stevens, from “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”

It’s good to have Garrett Hedlund standing next to you upon discovering a brunch reservation is required and no brunch reservation has in fact been made. They’ll seat you anyway. You can brunch anywhere.

Perhaps best known as the face of the Tron sequel, 29-year-old Garrett Hedlund is that strange and beatific embodiment of Hollywood lore, the flesh-and-blood protagonist of an old tale, that of the dreamy Midwest farm boy with stars in his eyes, looking to make good on big-screen aspirations.

At 14, he left his father’s remote cattle farm in Wannaska, Minnesota and began heading west. First, to his mother’s digs in Phoenix, Arizona, where, over the next couple years, he became an unabashed cold-caller of agents and managers, repeatedly taking the ninety-minute flight to Burbank for any audition he could get.

Then he swam out to the deep end—drove to Los Angeles. Within two weeks of moving, the script for Troy fell into his lap. All that paddling apparently paid off. Rather than sink or swim, Hedlund seems to be coasting on a deluxe inflatable with built-in beer koozies.

New York artist Andrew Levitas was a teenager when his father was diagnosed with cancer. And for the next decade, Levitas watched as his father fought the disease.

“He was an incredibly courageous guy,” said Levitas, 37. “We learned so much about being a strong and compassionate person and to put others first and accept your lot in life.”

But there came a point where his father knew he would never be free of the disease. He was in pain and worn out. He decided, Levitas said, “enough is enough.” He gathered his family to tell them he was pulling the plug on the machines and medications that were keeping him alive.

“I think in an incredibly beautiful and scary way, he gave up his own death for us,” Levitas said. “He may have chosen to have gone peacefully off and have people cry over him. But he used it as an opportunity to push buttons and for us to reconnect to each other. Rather than making it about him, he made it about us.”

His father’s decision to end his life was the inspiration for Levitas’ feature directorial debut, “Lullaby,” which opens June 13 and is available on VOD and iTunes.

Garrett Hedlund (“Tron: Legacy,” “Inside Llewyn Davis”) plays Jonathan, an unsuccessful musician estranged from his family. He arrives home after a long absence to learn that his father, Robert (Richard Jenkins), has decided to take himself off a life support system.
