Lean on Pete


15 year old Charley (Charlie Plummer) and his single father Ray (Travis Fimmel) arrive in Portland, Oregon - the latest in a long series of moves across the Pacific Northwest. Faced with yet another 'new start', Charley craves something secure, something definite - something stable. Taking a summer job with a grizzled horse trainer (Steve Buscemi) down at the local track, he quickly forms a bond with one of the veteran horses, Lean on Pete.Following the EIFF award winner 45 Years, director Andrew Haigh returns with this compassionate adaptation of Willy Vlautin's acclaimed novel.
