THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON
Thursday 5 December 2019 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
Zak is a determined, friendly young man with Down’s Syndrome. He escapes from the geriatric home he’s been placed in, searching for his pro wrestling hero, The Salt Water Redneck. Stowing away with fisherman Tyler, both are on the run ̶ though it’s better to be caught by worried carer Eleanor than the bad guys on Tyler’s tail. On their quest through the beautiful Carolina Outer Banks, the pair form a close friendship and discover their best selves, in this wonderfully charming, hilarious buddy movie.
