Storyline

Set in the not so distant future, in Any Town USA, sixteen year old Herman Howards makes a fateful decision. He enters his suburban school and kills thirty nine students, two teachers, and a police officer. Just before his arrest he emails his idol, famous journalist Lax Morales, sending him clips of the shootings captured with Herman's own digital camera. In the clips Herman tells Lax, "I want to tell my story on your show". Lax, haunted by his own past, is now face to face with Herman. The movie explores why and how a massacre like this can happen in our society, desensitizing in America, youth violence and bullying, the impact the media has on our individual quest for fame, and ultimately our need for connection.

Evocative and viscerally powerful
3 September 2013 | by hpham6See all my reviews

Michelle Danner's Hello Herman provides a difficult story to tell. Norman Reedus (of the Walking Dead effectively) provides a character with a troubled past, attempting to uncover the reason behind Herman's high school massacre. Yet, Michelle Danner, a celebrated acting coach in her own rights, portrays within the eponymous character a human complexity that is bound to make audiences uncomfortable. However, that discomfort is essential to the film's intent on providing more sides to the stories of student shootings – or rather, the trials and tribulations that push these student murderers into committing such violent actions. As it turns out, Herman's own victimization to bullying invoked a violent reaction. People who have been bullied themselves can understand Herman's justification. But as reasonable as it is, the film still communicates the importance of human life and how an unconcerned regard for it is inexcusable – and how such injustice only breeds more unjustifiable actions.
