In episode 7, we revisit our Special Issue on Andrew Haigh’s Lean on Pete by discussing one of the best film’s of 2018.
In this episode, we discuss Andrew Haigh’s fourth feature, Lean on Pete. The film follows homeless 15-year-old Charley as he traverses the American midwest, searching for his long lost aunt. Charley is alone but for a stolen racehorse names Lean on Pete and a collection of different strangers he meets along the way. At Seventh Row, we were huge fans of the film when it was released back in April, so much so that we decided to dedicate an entire Special Issue to it. That issue has recently been turned into an eBook that’s basically essential reading for fans of the film: you won’t find a more comprehensive look at its making. To celebrate our eBook’s release, Editor-in-Chief Alex Heeney, Associate Editor Orla Smith, and Contributing Editor Brett Pardy got together to talk about this wonderful film.
