The Peanut Butter Falcon

Modern Huckleberry-Finn adaptation about a handicapped boy who wants to become a wrestler. He receives support from a petty criminal fisherman.
Zak (Zack Gottsagen) has Down syndrome and wants nothing more than to become a big wrestling star. He spends most of his time in a supervised dormitory watching old videos of his hero “Salt Walter Redneck”. In order to train in his school, Zak has already made several attempts to break out.
With a little help from his roommate Carl (Bruce Dern), he finally managed to escape successfully. But his absence does not go unnoticed for long and supervisor Eleanor (Dakota Johnson) goes in search of the fugitive.
In the meantime, Zak meets the small-scale fisherman Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), who promises to accompany him to the wrestling school after some minor start-up difficulties. However, Eleanor is hot on their heels and she is determined to bring Zak back to the home. Can Tyler dissuade her?
The directors and screenwriters Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz enchanted us with their new buddy comedy, a kind of modern adaptation of the adventures of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn. The film skilfully works out how valuable diversity is and how much we can learn about ourselves from our fellow human beings. In addition, critics particularly emphasize the interplay between LaBeouf (“Transformers”) and his – in contrast to many other films – Gottsagen, his acting colleague, who is handicapped in real life, and who makes his feature film debut in “Peanut Butter Falcon”. “Fifty Shades of Gray” actress Dakota Johnson, the multiple Oscar-nominated Bruce Dern (“Nebraska”) and Thomas Haden Church (“Spider-Man 3”) join them.
