THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Peanut Butter Falcon—worthy script and well-made film—gives us a view of a much-matured Shia Lebeouf, a maturation that works very well in this movie. WOW! He brings a lot into this film. An additional super plus is the casting of Zack Gottsagen who has terrific charisma and plays very well on screen. The story is well presented, well done. A fun and worthy watch for the whole family, the movie deserves its place in the family home video entertainment library. Good work and thank you for everyone involved in putting the film into its final viewing product. 

Storyline
