About The Peanut Butter Falcon 💬

In a classic adventure tale worthy of Mark Twain, a down-on-his-luck fisherman and a young man bent on achieving an impossible dream make their way down the waterways of a mythical American South with the help of a succession of colorful strangers.

At loose ends since the death his brother, Tyler (Shia LaBeouf) has resorted to stealing the catch of other crab fishermen to survive. At the same time, Zak (Zack Gottsagen), a young man with Down syndrome, dreams of life as a professional wrestler. They both soon find themselves on the lam, as Tyler is pursued by a pair of angry fisherman (John Hawkes and Yelawolf), while Zak busts out of his care facility and hightails it from North Carolina toward Florida to find the professional wrestling school of his hero, the Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church).

With no money, map or even pants, Zak's plans soon come to a screeching halt, just like Tyler's battered fishing boat. A chance meeting sets the pair on a path that introduces them to a world they never dreamed existed. Along with Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), a conscientious aide from Zak's residence who comes to retrieve him, they set sail for a once-in-a-lifetime journey on a makeshift raft through an unfamiliar and extraordinary landscape.

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is a joyous and uplifting folk story that celebrates the friendship of three unexpectedly kindred spirits.


When I was 15 a judge sentenced me to 16 months in a boot camp for wayward boys. My crime was a simple misdemeanor. But being an outcast from a strict religious community, the powers-that-be wanted to make an example of me. I was dropped off in the middle of the North Carolina and told ''try not to die out there.'' What I thought would be arduous and painful turned into the most exhilarating experience of my life. Ironically, the following year plus in an ''outside jail for children'' was when I became the most free boy on earth. I had total reign of my life, so long as I didn't journey outside of the razor wire fence on the 95 square mile property. I built my own house out of trees, I slept wherever I wanted, I stopped bathing, and I danced around fires late into the night with other boys who found themselves in the same place at the same time. It was magic, nothing could touch us; we were the wildest of animals.

When I finally came home 16 months later, I longed for the life I left behind in the woods. My father said to me ''No man is an island'' I have struggled with the reality of those words, and wish to express that with my art, film making. I'm still a wild animal but in a different way. I know with THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON we can capture that magic on film. What it feels like to be completely free, and then to find balance and eventually peace with the fast-paced world. After all, no man is an island.

I plan to combine the elements of my youth with the stark juxtaposition of the friends of my present. I work and make films with Down syndrome actors. Many of them struggle to maintain a regular life, not because of their disabilities, but because of others disbelief in their talents. I have had many friends with Downs placed in old age homes because of lack of proper care. I know how beautiful freedom is, and I know what it feels like to be locked away as well. I am grateful I know that freedom in the outdoors and my heart aches for my friends with Down syndrome who touch only linoleum floors and plastic all day. I am not making this film for them. However, I am making it for the people who believe it is ok to dismiss them and lock them away. Prejudice towards Down syndrome is costing a lot of young people good years of their lives. Everyone should know what it feels like to go a little wild, even if you've got an extra copy of chromosome 21.


TYLER (34) is a down on his luck crab fisherman from the Outer Banks of North Carolina, part Huckleberry Finn and part Han Solo. Not sure whether he's a good guy or bad guy, Tyler dances in the space between as he carries the loss of a loved one with him on an unexpected journey.

ELEANOR (26) has completed the coursework for a PhD in Social Welfare and is finishing up her residency at the retirement home where Zak lives. She is from a wealthy family and embodies the essence of a young Jackie Kennedy. She is smart, driven, and beautiful inside and out. Until she meets Tyler she is positive that she's making all the right decisions.

ZAK (22) is a young man with high-functioning Down syndrome. For years he has lived his life in a retirement home and has high hopes of becoming a professional wrestler.

DUNCAN (45-55) has been trolling the waters off North Carolina as a commercial fisherman his entire life. Driven by what he sees as right Duncan does what must be done to take care of himself, his community, and his family.

RATBOY (23-30) has a strong presence rooted in a shady ''rock star with a dark past'' attitude.

CRAIG (20-40) runs in the same crowd as Duncan and Ratboy. He spends his time with fishermen and crabbers and is easily recognized by his high pitched laugh and larger than life appearance.

Like many men that thrive into their 80's CARL (82) has learned that it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission. He is smarter than most, sees himself as a ladies man, and in the retirement home where he shares a room with Zak he learns as much each day as he teaches.

MARK (45) believes in having a good time and believes in having it now. He is confident and fun-loving and together with his little brother Tyler has run the family crab boat since they were kids.

THE SALT WATER REDNECK (50) is the 12th greatest wrestler to ever come out of North Carolina. With his glory days behind him Salt Water's friends have reverted to calling him Clint and he spends his nights sleeping in a trailer on the rustic property where he used to run a wrestling school.

SAMSON (51) lives in a shed on The Salt Water Redneck's property. He never quite made it to ''professional'' wrestler but backyard Sunday matches are still the place he feels most alive.

JACOB (30-60) is passionate about backyard wrestling and the man at the center of the local scene where The Salt Water Redneck made his mark. He is loud, lovable, and lives for he weekends when he presides over the festivities at ''Jacob's Inferno.''

BLIND JASPER JOHN (45-65) has never been more than an hour up or down river from where he was born and where he runs a junkyard today. He is a god-fearing man with passions for family, six-shooters, and salvation.
