We all have stories, we can all turn those stories into everlasting pieces of art, and we don't need to follow anybody else's rules to do it. Like the characters within it this film isn't perfect but it's human and it's alive and it's made of love and I don't know what's more perfect than that.
A rugged, honest, and beautiful film. It's the well acted, well written, well shot, well directed, and A24 produced kind of gem I live for. Lean on Pete is a quiet coming of age story that takes its time to develop its ideas while keeping a solid pace. Made me really want to read the script for it.
