[7.25/10] Lean on Pete (2018)

Lean on Pete (2018)

Quick Review: Far from your corny human-horse relationship, "Lean on Pete" is completely free of insipid melodrama and cliches, telling a raw and genuine coming-of-age story about a motherless teen boy facing the harshness of life and loss while discovering a new infatuation which becomes his driving force, and it's such an intimate look, you can't help but being emotionally attached to Charley, portrayed brilliantly credibly by Plummer, and rooting for him in his struggle for survival.

Not a stupid horse movie? Good to know.
(That's just what I've dubbed all horse movies since my wife always drags me to see them.)

Same here, Alex. This one is pretty different though.
