From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years), and based on the beloved novel by Willy Vlautin, comes Lean on Pete, a deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family and friendship, told through the unique prism of one boy’s 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 ageing Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete.
The horse’s gruff owner Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi) and his seasoned jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny) help Charley fill the void of his father’s absence, until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s 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 hasn’t seen in years. They experience adventure and heartbreak in equal measure, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resilience 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 Scott’s 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.
