Zak (Zack Gottsagen) has Down’s Syndrome and has been in a nursing home for two years when he stages an escape, aided by an older inmate (Bruce Dern). Hiding himself upon a fishing boat owned by Tyler (Shia LeBeouf), he is on a mission to attend a wrestling training camp he has seen on an aged VHS tape and become the titular Peanut Butter Falcon. As the duo team up, they are pursued by nursing home volunteer Eleanor (Dakota Johnson).
One of the rare films to allow a person with a disability centre stage, Gottsagen’s multilayered, often hilarious performance is at the heart of this winning story of finding yourself.
