Lean on Pete Online Movie Trailer

Published on 19 Nov 2018 / In Adventure

The film, originally referred to as Lean on Pete as a novel by Willy Vlautin, is based on the difficult age of Charley whose loneliness is comforting in friendship with the races. Another part of the filmography that, though young people already reveals recurring themes and a very personal style, Charley Thompson has his strengths in the extraordinary interpretation of young protagonist Charlie Plummer (Marcello Mastroianni at the 74th Venice Film Festival) and the director's ability to tell an exciting story with a dry style without sentimentality .

Fighting with the first movie set in the United States, Englishman Andrew Haigh once again proves to be a good actor. Teacher in setting up intimate dialogues, emotional, but explicit, Haigh confirms his exceptional sensitivity to capturing the emotional shadows of his characters. He is constantly engaging in rhetoric by including hard, even violent elements that increase the level of film realism. He deals with complex and often contradictory human relationships such as one between the young protagonist Charley and his father, or between Charley and Dela, coach coach Steve Buscemi. When Charley starts working for Delom, it seems that the boy's feeling of childhood is born in the other.

The feelings the ruler decides to demonstrate in an anti-rhetorical way, emphasizing the opposite of Dela's roughness and selfishness. Just impressed with the good will of the boy, Del decides to offer him a salary higher than the agreed, except next time he will pay less than he should. Later, the relationship between them will be subjected to further change naturally, even more radical. Fascinated by the inconsistencies and unpredictability of human relationships, Haigh works on the disagreement between the spoken word and the emotion that supports him. He has always stayed away from the cliché and is constantly surprised by the spectator despite the obvious sobriety and classicism of his story.
