Lean on Pete

I noticed that the tag line for this movie is “you can’t get anywhere on your own” which is hilarious because this movie completely disproves notion completely.  I didn’t have a rough childhood by any stretch of the imagination but I understand what it is like to have…. disappointing…. parental role models and the final scene really resonated with me.  The final ten minutes are extremely gratifying in that the director didn’t ruin the spirit of the film (go back to the first line of this review).  Charlie Plummer has a bright future ahead of him.
