Synopsis

Zak (Zack Gottsgagen), a young man with Down syndrome, runs away from a residential nursing home with the help of his crochety roommate (Bruce Dern), to follow his dream of attending a professional wrestling school run by his idol, Clint (Thomas Hayden Church), a.k.a. The Salt Water Redneck. Eleanor (Dakota Johnson), the volunteer who was in charge of Zak, goes after him to bring him back.

However, Zak meets up with a drifter named Tyler (Shia Labeouf) and convinces him to let him tag along, and soon, the two become friends. Tyler, who just lost his brother, decides to help Zak, and teaches him essentials such as how to swim and shoot. He also promises to drop Zak off at The Salt Water Redneck's wrestling school. The two build a raft and set off on their way.

  • 5 stars "This movie to me was spectacular. So incredible to see what a real life can be like. Terrific actors and I was disappointed when it was over!"
  • 5 stars "Best movie I've seen in years. I'm a buff;see at least two movies every weekend. The other five star reviews accurately describe the strengths of this film. Disregard the negative reviews. Anybody who can't appreciate this film and the authentic real world language is imposing their personal prejudices on a work of art. But don't we all?"
  • 2 stars "It appears I am about the only person here who didn't like this film. Frankly, I enjoyed recently watch the old George and Lenny Looney Toons cartoons than this which shows how insensitive and uncultured I am. Frankly I am surprised after the success of Forest Gump they didn't put this film out three decades ago as Tom Hanks adrift on the river of Tom and Huck with Morgan Freeman as the narrator."
