The Peanut Butter Falcon, about a young man with Down syndrome who dreams of becoming a professional wrestler, also stars Oscar nominee John Hawkes (2010, Best Supporting Actor, Winter's Bone), Zack Gottsagen (Bulletproof), Oscar® nominee and Emmy® winner Thomas Haden Church (2004, Best Supporting Actor, Sideways), and Oscar® nominee Bruce Dern (2013, Best Actor, Nebraska) From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine, The Peanut Butter Falcon is "full of heart and packed with humor" (Jeremy Dick, MovieWeb).
A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, The Peanut Butter Falcon tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.
