Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a man in his twenties with Downs syndrome, lives in a retirement home as the little town he’s from doesn’t have any facilities for people with his needs. Zak isn’t happy living with the pensioners, and escapes to fulfil his dream of going to a wrestling school.
On the road, he meets the troubled thief Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), who’s also on the run, and together they set out on a modern-day Mark Twain journey through the Southern States. In hot pursuit is Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a nurse from Zak’s retirement home. She’s been given the task of returning Zak before anyone notices that he’s gone. The Peanut Butter Falcon is a warm, funny and touching film about unlikely friendships and the chasing of dreams.
The screening Friday at 08.30 includes breakfast!
