“Shia LaBeouf shines in this funny, heartwarming adventure … [but] Gottsagen, an actor with Down syndrome, is a real find, and is the heart and soul of the entire film.” – The Playlist

 Tyler (Shia LaBeouf in a career-best performance) skirts conflict wherever he goes, scratching out a simple life fishing for crabs in sun-drenched North Carolina. Zak (newcomer Zack Gottasgen), a 22-year old man with Down’s Syndrome, has been relegated to living with residents three and four time his age in a retirement home, with no family and nowhere else to go. He watches old wrestling films with his elderly roommate (Bruce Dern) all day, but yearns for something more. With Zak and Tyler both desperately seeking change in their lives, they separately escape their surroundings, meeting up by chance, becoming unlikely travel companions. What follows is a Huckleberry Finn road movie adventure through the deep south, as the two attempt to evade capture and fulfil Zak’s dream of becoming a pro wrestling superstar.

From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine, The Peanut Butter Falcon is a jubilant, contemporary folk odyssey taking progressive steps in lead character casting, and showcasing performances that warmly welcome audiences into their modern Mark Twain-style adventure.
