The Peanut Butter Falcon Unclassified 18+

View Trailer

“Just when you think you’ve got Shia LaBeouf figured out, he goes and makes a film like The Peanut Butter Falcon, a sincere, Southern-fried buddy movie.” – Variety

Tyler is a crab fisherman living in poverty and despair, just this side of the law. Zak, a 22-year-old man with Down syndrome, has been abandoned by his parents and placed by the state in a retirement home, where he spends his days watching old wrestling videos. Both men are seeking escape and when they do, circumstance brings them together for what will become a modern Mark Twain-style adventure through the sun-baked backwoods of North Carolina.

Winner of the SXSW Audience Award (Narrative Spotlight), The Peanut Butter Falcon is the picaresque, picturesque debut feature from Tyler Nilson and Mike Schwarz. With gorgeous widescreen cinematography from True Detective’s Nigel Bluck, the film stars Shia LaBeouf opposite charismatic newcomer Zack Gottsagen, with an ensemble that includes Dakota Johnson, Bruce Dern, Jon Bernthal, John Hawkes and Thomas Haden Church. Together they create an amusing, contemporary folk odyssey that feels comfortably lived in and wonderfully natural.

“Shia LaBeouf Shines in this funny, heartwarming adventure … [but] Gottsagen, an actor with Down syndrome, is a real find, and is the heart and soul of the entire film.” – The Playlist
