Please note: Film Independent at LACMA ticketing is no longer handled by Eventbrite. All ticket purchases/reservations are now routed through the LACMA box office online ticketing system.
Director Andrew Haigh (45 Years, Looking) shifts from the urbane to something more laconic with his newest film Lean on Pete, which follows unhappy teenager Charley (Charlie Plummer) who suffers in a small place made even more claustrophobic by his angry dad. When the at-loose-ends young man finds his way into the race horse circuit and develops an attachment to a particular – and peculiar – animal, he finds a path to the previously unimaginable: satisfaction. Haigh’s able cast also includes Chloe Sevigny and Steve Buscemi. The director will discuss the motivation behind his latest work in a Q&A after the screening.
2018, 119 minutes, color, DCP | Written by Andrew Haigh; directed by Andrew Haigh; with Charlie Plummer, Steve Buscemi and Chloe Sevigny
