The Peanut Butter Falcon Rated 12A

The Peanut Butter Falcon

Dir. Tyler Nilson, Mike Schwartz. USA, 2019. 1h 37m. Starring Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen, John Hawkes, Thomas Haden Church, Bruce Dern.

After running away from a residential nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a pro wrestler, a man who has Down syndrome befriends a small-time outlaw who becomes his coach and ally. A big-hearted buddy adventure brought to life by outstanding performances from Shia LaBeouf and newcomer Zack Gottsagen.

‘LaBeouf is scruffily compelling, while the pinpoint comic timing of Gottsagen should be a lesson to any drab corners of the film industry still resisting disabled actors.’ ★★★★ Danny Leigh, The FT

‘This is LaBeouf at his best, stripped down to his bare elements and bookended by two luminous performances from Gottsagen and Johnson.’ ★★★★ Beth Webb, Empire Magazine
