Opening Night Event - Lean on Pete
Lean on Pete

Run Time: 120 minutes

Screening Time:
Thursday April 5th,  6:00 pm

Directed by: Andrew Haigh

Cast: Steve Buscemi, Chloƫ Sevigny, and Charlie Plummer

Synopsis:  From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (Weekend; 45 Years), and based on the beloved novel by Willy Vlautin, comes Lean on Petea deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family, and friendship, told through the unique prism of one boys connection to a very special racehorse.

Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both of them eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete. The horses gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chloƫ Sevigny) help Charley fill the void of his fathers absenceuntil he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friends life. Charley and Pete head out into the great unknown, embarking on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasnt seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home.

Featuring an incredible breakout turn by Charlie Plummer (The Dinner; King Jack; Ridley Scotts forthcoming All The Money in the World) and memorable supporting work by indie stalwarts Buscemi, Sevigny and Steve Zahn, Lean on Pete is a compassionate and heartrending look at the desire for love, family, and acceptance that drives all of us.
