The Peanut Butter Falcon

Friday 8 November

19:00 - 20:37 Kijkhuis 2

Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down’s Syndrome, is frustrated by the slow pace of life at the nursing home in which he resides. Itching for some excitement, he dreams of becoming a professional wrestler, obsessively re-watching a worn-out VHS tape of his favourite Lycra-clad hero, The Salt Water Redneck. Hatching a plan to meet his idol, Zak makes a break from his geriatric prison, with his worried carer Eleanor (Dakota Johnson) in hot pursuit. Meanwhile, struggling fisherman Tyler (Shia LaBeouf) is on a mission of his own – to escape the clutches of a pair of angry crabbers after unwisely messing with their traps. Fate brings these two accidental fugitives together, and so begins an epic journey and a profound friendship that will change both their lives forever. The ever-impressive LaBeouf and Johnson shine throughout, but this is Gottsagen’s film. His acting debut is nothing short of a revelation, guaranteed to stir the heart of even the most steadfast cynic.
