Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good Cliches aside, there's something at work in "The Peanut Butter Falcon," something eccentric and exuberant. Nilson and Schwartz's devotion to the details of Zac's world highlights Gottsagen's funny and intelligent performance, giving the film an authenticity it wouldn't otherwise have.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At loose ends since the death his brother, Tyler (LaBeouf) has resorted to stealing the catch of other crab fishermen to survive. At the same time, Zak, a young man with Down syndrome, dreams of life as a professional wrestler. They both soon find themselves on the lam, as Tyler is pursued by a pair of angry fisherman (John Hawkes and Yelawolf), while Zak busts out of his care facility and hightails it from North Carolina toward Florida to find the professional wrestling school of his hero, the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church).

With no money, map or even pants, Zak's plans soon come to a screeching halt, just like Tyler's battered fishing boat. A chance meeting sets the pair on a path that introduces them to a world they never dreamed existed. Along with Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a conscientious aide from Zak's residence who comes to retrieve him, they set sail for a once-in-a-lifetime journey on a makeshift raft through an unfamiliar and extraordinary landscape.
