A few days ago I attended the Stockholm Movie Days 2020, a day filled with several different movies that are premiering this year, though sadly I couldn’t attend both days and all the films, I managed to make (personal opinion) the most important one – one that I will remember for a long time, hoping that it’ll wake the interest of more directors and writers to create more pieces like these.
Director; Tyler Nilson & Michael Schwartz
1h 37 minutes
Swedish premiere; March 20th
A film that captures your heart and never lets it go. You wrap your entire soul all around the story, writing, acting, and visual like a big bow and you feel truly blissfull throughout the entire movie – happy that movies like these are still being made, leaving the theater with a smile from ear to ear, thankful that stories with depth haven’t become a lost art.
Peanut Butter Falcon wins it all in every aspect, it was a fantastic movie that made me smile, laugh, and even feel chock at sudden moments that one wasn’t expecting.
It is interesting, intriguing, and you get hooked, unable to do anything else than getting lost in this heartfelt movie that will make it very far. Its sweetness will get inside the hearts of many, camp there and stay for a while – making you feel all warm and fuzzy.
Zack played by the incredible Zack Gottsagen, a young man with down syndrome with dreams to attend a wrestling school escapes the caring home he is staying and also leaving his caregiver, Eleanor (Dakota Johnsson) behind to fulfill his dreams, along his journey he meets Tyler (Shia Labeouf) who shows him the joys in life he thought he would never get to explore.
Strongly recommended, a movie that not only has your essence float on cloud 9, but it teaches you so much about bonding, acceptance, friendship, love, and following ones dreams no matter the circumstances. 8/10
