A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.

I’d you aren’t a fan of superheroes, sometimes it’s hard to find a good movie nowadays, but I have a new hero - Peanut Butter Falcon! This is the story of Zak, a young adult with Down Syndrome, who runs away from his long-term care facility to chase his dream to attend pro wrestling school. He picks up misfit Tyler (an amazing Shia LaBeouf!) as they are each chased across the countryside, and sometimes they are just running from their pasts.

What a great film to see, I highly recommend it as a perfectly paced, feel good movie. Believing in yourself can be everything; believing in others is a gift.
