Thus, when a film does manage to break this syndrome and releases on the big screen, it is no doubt an occasion to celebrate for film fans. The film ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’, directed and written by Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz, did manage to create a buzz immediately upon its release at South by Southwest on March 9, 2019. The main attraction of the film is no doubt its brilliant cast, which comprises of Shia LaBeouf, Zack Gottsagen, Dakota Johnson, John Hawkes, Bruce Dern, Jon Bernthal, and Thomas Haden Church.
This film is actually a modern retelling of the life of Mark Twain’s popular character Huckleberry Finn. Gottsagen himself has always wanted to become an actor, and the central character of the film, Zack somewhat based on his life, wants to become a wrestler.
