Hull Independent Cinema: Lean On Pete

12 Jun 2018


15-year-old Charley arrives in Portland with his father Ray, both eager for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks.

Charley finds camaraderie at a local racetrack in an ageing quarter horse named Lean On Pete. The horse’s gruff owner Del and his seasoned jockey Bonnie help Charley fill the void of his father’s absence, until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life.

They experience adventure and heartbreak, but never lose their irrepressible hope and resiliency as they pursue their dream of finding a place they can call home.
