The Peanut Butter Falcon
Gentle, goofy, big-hearted comedy that doubles as an homage to Mark Twain.
Director: Tyler Nilson, Michael Schwartz
Cast includes: Thomas Haden Church, Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, John Hawkes
93 Mins / 2019 / USA
Zak, a young man with Down Syndrome, lives in a nursing home but dreams of becoming a professional wrestler. Running away in hope of reaching the wrestling school of his idol, the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church), he meets Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw, on the road – and together they team up, winding through deltas, eluding capture, drinking whisky, finding God, catching fish, and convincing Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them.
Shot on location in Georgia, The Peanut Butter Falcon draws considerable power from the off-the-grid rural south it depicts, as well as Gottsagen and LaBeouf’s committed performances and an excellent wider cast that includes Bruce Dern, John Hawkes and Jon Bernthal. Emotive even as it keeps sentimentality at bay, it feels refreshingly modern and bracingly optimistic, a contemporary road-movie riff on a classic American story.
