Lean on Pete [15] Sun. April 21, 17:35

Charley, a teen living with his single father, finds work caring for an aging racehorse named Lean on Pete. When he learns Pete is bound for slaughter, the two embark on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a place to call home.

A coming-of-age story that unfolds gradually, Lean on Pete takes place in what the writer Michael Harrington called “the invisible land” of the poor, a reality too little seen in American movies. Full review Manohla Dargis, New York Times
