2.30 screening subtitled for those with a hearing loss
Director: Andrew Haigh
Stars: Charlie Plummer, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny
A teenage boy (Plummer) gets casual work in a circuit of downmarket racetracks helping a trainer (Buscemi) and his part-time jockey (Sevigny). When a horse named Lean on Pete has lost once too often, boy and beast head off together, across the beautiful Oregon and Wyoming back country – desert, mountains and sage-brush, studded with small towns, truck stops, and isolated ranches. Haigh (45 Years) is “a truly great writer and director, working near the top of his game” (rogerebert.com).
