LEAN ON PETE (2018)

Written and Directed by Andrew Haigh

It Works. (Spoiler Alert!)

A beautifully understated drama.

A wonderful example of three perfect ‘invisible’ acts. Invisible in the sense that the act climaxes flow through the story without calling attention to themselves as plotting.

A beautifully-told story that reveals a world we’ve never seen before.

Vivid Realism verging on Naturalism and, above all, un-romanticized.

An exemplar Evolution Plot: the protagonist evolves from dependency on “others” to “self” reliance.
