The Peanut Butter Falcon

  • The Peanut Butter Falcon

A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, The Peanut Butter Falcon tells the story of a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending a professional wrestling school. A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. 

“Gottsagen, LaBeouf and Johnson deliver intensely realistic performances of three humans looking for healing and connection after life has delivered them cards that look less like a hand and more like a foot.” -Stephen Rodrick, The Globe and Mail
