From acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Haigh (45 YEARS) comes LEAN ON PETE —a deeply moving story about love, loneliness, family, and friendship. In an incredible breakout performance, Charlie Plummer (ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD) stars as fifteen-year-old Charley, who arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel), both are eager for a fresh start. When Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds camaraderie at a local racetrack caring for an aging Quarter Horse, Lean On Pete, but when he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, Charley takes Pete and embarks on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a loving aunt Charley hasn’t seen in years. Through adventure and heartbreak, they never lose their irrepressible hope as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home.
