Lean on Pete ★★★★½

A complicated film. 

Determined to rescue his horse pal Lean on Pete from the “glue factory”, 15 year old Charlie hijacks him and invites him on a quest. Both have been beaten down by life. There are more beatings to come. 

A slow, methodic progression from the first frame to the last, atmospheric, well-crafted, bleak. Soundtrack and cinematography rewarding. Acting first rate. 

No plot clues here!  

Grandson tour.
