The Peanut Butter Falcon (12A)
A young man with Down syndrome runs away to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional wrestler in this good-natured, heartfelt adventure comedy-drama. A modern-day spin on Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from the producers of Little Miss Sunshine. Zak lives in a nursing home but dreams of becoming a professional wrestler. He hits the road in search of the wrestling school of his idol. On his journey, he meets Tyler, a small-time outlaw, who's also on the run. The unlikely pair team up, winding through deltas, eluding capture, drinking whisky, finding God, catching fish, and convincing Eleanor, a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them. A refreshingly modern and bracingly optimistic road-movie that delivers on laughs and delights the soul.
