I was a bit surprised to see this Lean on Pete trailer was fairly vanilla for a studio that pushes the lines of decency just about all the time. Lean on Pete will be out this Friday, so you know it will be creamed by the Avengers. But for people who are over super hero films, this modern day Black Beauty looks to offer a wonderful alternative and an American adventure for our time.
It will explore the limits of love and family and trust. I can’t screen everything, at least not in theaters, but I have a feeling I will be watching this one at home where I can really appreciate the story and nuanced critique of our society.
