A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak, 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. A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler, 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, a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.

Starring Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen, Thomas Hayden Church.

Awards and Reviews

Winner – Winner – Audience Award Narrative Spotlight, SXSW Film Festival; Winner – Audience Award, Best Narrative Feature, Nantucket Film Festival

“LaBeouf brings the soul to “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” while Gottsagen brings the spirit. He has an undeniably charming screen presence, and the actor takes to this starring role with gusto.” – Los Angeles Times

“LaBeouf holds the screen with natural allure, making every twinge of his character’s self-reproach, and every instant of his dawning joy, achingly felt. His nuanced performance propels this journey.” – Hollywood Reporter
