A modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey.

"LaBeouf brings the soul to THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON, while Gottsagen brings the spirit. He has an undeniably charming screen presence, and the actor takes to this starring role with gusto."
Katie Walsh - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON refuses to condescend to its star and tells a story that’s authentic to the life and experiences of adults with Down Syndrome."
Alan Ng - FILM THREAT

"This lovely debut feature by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz trafficks in the pleasure of watching intriguing people working through outlandish problems in unlikely ways. Go in expecting the best and you'll come out smiling."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Cliches aside, there's something at work in THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON, something eccentric and exuberant. Nilson and Schwartz's devotion to the details of Zac's world highlights Gottsagen's funny and intelligent performance, giving the film an authenticity it wouldn't otherwise have."
Sheila O'Malley - ROGEREBERT.COM
