The Peanut Butter Falcon

2019 ‧ 98 min ‧ PG-13 ‧ CC, DVS

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.
“LaBeouf brings the soul to The Peanut Butter Falcon, while Gottsagen brings the spirit. He has an undeniably charming screen presence, and the actor takes to this starring role with gusto.”
– Katie Walsh,

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

2019 ‧ 92 min ‧ PG-13 ‧ CC, DVS

When “Fiddler on the Roof” opened on Broadway in 1964, it explored themes of tradition, religion, and anti-Semitism against a modern backdrop of radical social change that addressed gender roles, sexuality, and race. Rare archival footage and interviews with musical luminaries explore the legacy of this long-running, award-winning musical.
“Max Lewkowicz’s documentary emerges as essential viewing by exposing the behind-the-scenes drama and on-stage magic of ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ a musical and cultural landmark whose influence spans nations, races, religions and generations.”
– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
