Lean on Pete

A lonely teenager with an unstable home life (Charlie Plummer, All the Money in the World) gets a summer job working for an irascible horse trainer (Steve Buscemi) and befriends an aging racehorse. The Hollywood Reporter says, “This is a compassionately observed story told with unimpeachable naturalism and without a grain of sentimentality, propelled by a remarkable performance that’s both internalized and emotionally raw.” Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years) has made a deeply moving film that will get under your skin.

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
