Ben Williams from Rokkwood Audio and Will Roe from The Times & Sunday Times Stories of Our Time podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Ben’s choice The Peanut Butter Falcon.


The Peanut Butter Falcon is a 2019 coming of age/odd-couple road movie starring Shia LaBeouf as Tyler (angry, on the run, misunderstood) and Zack Gottsagen as Zak an escapee from a care facility with Downs Syndrome, trying to follow his dreams) and Dakota Johnson as Eleanor as the care facility worker sent to being Zak home. Thrown into the paths of the unlikely friendship is John Hawkes Duncan who is chasing Tyler for money owned and revenge and Thomas Haden Church as Zak’s hero the wrestler The Salt Water Redneck.

The Peanut Butter Falcon was the sleeper hit of 2019, it is impossible not to be caught with its Twainesque charm and laidback pace, helped by genuine chemistry between its two leads. The casting of Zack Gottsagen is a welcome move towards inclusivity in mainstream film and you’d be dead inside to not be moved by his optimism and humor.


Helped with having a runtime of 98 minutes, The Peanut Butter Falcon scores very highly on recommendability from everyone and pretty high on the small screen too to score 4.46 overall. Highly recommended!
