Kate Rodger TV3 4.5/ 5 Stars.”It really is just a marvellous watch and a fabulous start to the year.”
The Guardian (UK) 4/ 5 Stars. “The heart of The Peanut Butter Falcon beats to a rhythm that harks back to the ragged romanticism of a Huck Finn adventure, a time when outlaws were armed with charm rather than a tyre iron. Set in the North Carolina Outer Banks, it goes all out on bluegrass economy, a story plucked out on a twanging banjo and the audience’s heartstrings. But, perhaps against the odds, this shambling buddy movie really works.“

The Peanut Butter Falcon is an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak (22), a young man with Down syndrome runs away from a nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and attending the wrestling school of The Salt Water Redneck. Through circumstances beyond their control Tyler (32), a small time outlaw on the run becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (28), a kind nursing home employee with a story of her own to join them on their journey.
