Matinee in the Cafe!Friday November 15, 2019
Stop by the Second Chapter Cafe to watch a different film each week!
This week's selection is The Peanut Butter Falcon!
A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, this film 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 a professional wrestling school. 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 whiskey, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey. (Rotten Tomatoes)
Run time: 93 minutes
