The Peanut Butter Falcon is relatively short in length, but loaded with nuance. Filmmakers Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz explore their setting and characters.

Anyone who mocks or patronizes the developmentally handicapped will learn a crucial lesson from this movie. Treat individuals with respect and you'' ll be shocked what they can teach you.

His work over the last three years has been superb. The Peanut Butter Falcon will be released theatrically on August 9th by Roadside Attractions. Julian Roman
