Lean on Pete Trailer

“Lean on Pete” Trailer Pulls at Your Heartstrings

Grab a tissue because the new trailer for A24’s Lean on Pete gives us all the feels.

Charlie Plummer stars as Charley Thompson, a fifteen-year-old boy who finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack after he and his father make the move to Portland, Oregon.  When Charley lands a job caring for an aging horse named Lean on Pete, a friendship is developed.  But when he discovers that his new friend is headed for the slaughter, Charley and Pete head out on a wild adventure across the country in search of hope, love and understanding.

Backed by an emotional score, the trailer gives Lean on Pete a sense of raw emotion and heartbreak.  The film looks to pull hard at your heartstrings and will likely require a tissue or two - never a bad thing when you’re dealing with a coming of age story involving a young boy and his love for an animal.

Steve Buscemi and Chloë Sevigny join Plummer in the film, which is directed by Andrew Haigh and set to hit theaters on March 30.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
