Plot Synopsis:

Steeped in controversy, unflinching, unforgettable. Dekanolog is proud to present Asia Argento's adaptation of J.T. Leroy's best selling novel The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things, a searing exploration of trauma and survival in the underside of America's heartland. Headlining one of the most intriguing casts of the 2000s, which includes Peter Fonda, Ornella Muti, Jeremy Renner, Lydia Lunch, Ben Foster, and Winona Ryder, Argento stars as Sarah, a woman who rips her son (played at various points by Jimmy Bennett, Dylan, and Cole Sprouse) out of foster care and throws him into her transient life as a sex worker at truck stops. Leroy was later revealed to be a fabrication of author Laura Albert and her sibling-in-law Savannah Knoop, a story that broke the year after The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things was released. Argento's blistering second feature finds real pain in a historic hoax, traveling to dark places most directors fear to tread.
