The Peanut Butter Falcon. You really have to see it to get it. To its credit, it won a SXSW Film Award. It’s about a man named Zak in his early 20s with Downs Syndrome who eventually escapes the nursing home he is in. He’s obsessed with pro wrestling, and he meets up with a shady but somewhat good guy. They go on a Huck Finn-style adventure trying to get Zak to a wrestler and coach he idolizes. A note about production, Zak is played by Zach Gottsagen who has Downs. He got the role when a film crew visited his community, and he told them he wanted to be in a movie.
