Filmmakers Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz discuss the motivation for writing the story, visualizing the film and working with their incredible cast on their award-winning movie The Peanut Butter Falcon with FlickDirect's Allison Rose during it's Bonyton Beach, Florida premiere.
ABOUT THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCONA modern Mark Twain style adventure story, THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON tells the story of Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak's return, to join them on their journey.
