The Peanut Butter Falcon is an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak (22), a young man with Down syndrome runs away from a nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and attending the wrestling school of The Salt Water Redneck. Through circumstances beyond their control Tyler (32), a small time outlaw on the run becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (28), a kind nursing home employee with a story of her own to join them on their journey.
User Reviews: I’m not going to go too deep into this, but I just want everyone reading to know that you absolutely should see this.
The acting is amazing, the cinematography is stellar, editing and dialogue is quippy, and you fall in love with the characters.
Although a bit unbelievable, it’s so funny and absolutely charming. Shia, Dakota, and Zack are all amazing, and this is the feel-good movie of the year. I have honestly no real gripes with this, and it’s so refreshing to see this wonderful tale of friendship put to screen.
