Lean on Pete ★★★★

The most complimentary thing I can say about this film is that it ISN’T the type of movie you think it is. The bond he has with the horse in central to the film, but it ain’t the whole story. Charlie Plummer is perfect in the role, and is as expressive of an actor as I’ve seen in a while (regardless of age). I’d recommend going on this journey with him, as emotionally wrenching as it may be.
