Charlie Plummer falls for a horse in gorgeous Lean on Pete trailer

Posted on

From the adorable bird resting atop Allison Janney’s shoulder in I, Tonya to the sea-dwelling humanoid in The Shape of Water, beastly figures have played a key role in some of the best movies of 2017, and thanks to the new trailer for A24’s Lean on Pete, that trend looks to continue well into the new year.

The directorial follow up to Andrew Haigh’s Oscar-nominated drama 45 Years, Lean on Pete follows a young boy, Charley (Charlie Plummer), who embarks on a soul-searching trek through the American countryside after suffering an unforeseeable tragedy. Broken by circumstance, Charley forms a powerful bond with a lone accomplice: the film’s titular racehorse, whose silent but steady companionship inspires a journey of personal growth in this powerful coming-of-age tale.

Haigh, who also directed the critically acclaimed 2011 romance Weekend in addition to creating HBO’s short-lived series Looking, debuted Lean on Pete at the Venice Film Festival in September. It later traveled the festival circuit riding high on positive reviews from critics, making stops in Toronto and Telluride along the way.

Lean on Pete is in theaters on March 30. Watch the film’s new trailer above, and see its new poster below.
