The 2019 BFI London Film Festival has come to an end and what a fantastic fest it was this year!

One of my favorite films of the festival this year was no doubt The Peanut Butter Falcon starring Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson and Zack Gottsagen.


Premise: After running away from a residential nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a pro wrestler, a man with Down Syndrome befriends an outlaw who becomes his coach and ally.

Why I liked it: This movie is heartfelt, original, humorous and full of charm with strong performances from the entire cast. This movie is bound to be nominated for a few Academy awards. If it isn’t, it would be a crying shame…

UK and US release date: 18 October 2019
