The Peanut Butter Falcon

Opens Friday, October 4th

This modern Mark Twain style adventure story tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey. (PG-13, 93 mins)

“The film’s reality-defying, storybook approach to the plot and the characters grows on you.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

“Set in the rural Deep South, the film features a soundtrack of country and indie rock, providing a sonic backdrop of banjo twang to the vistas of bayous and woodlands.” – Travis DeShong, Washington Post
