The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon Twelve A

A young boy with Down syndrome runs away to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional wrestler in this goodnatured, heartfelt adventure comedy-drama, a modern-day spin on Mark Twain’s 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' backed by the producers of Little Miss Sunshine. Zak (performer, teacher and disability advocate Zack Gottsagen, around whom the film was crafted) lives in a nursing home but dreams of becoming a wrestler. Running away to try and find the wrestling school of his idol, the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church), he meets Tyler (Shia LaBeouf), a small time outlaw, on the road – and together they team up, winding through deltas, eluding capture and convincing Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them.

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village
