    SANTA MONICA, CA (May 15, 2018) – Find hope and acceptance in the most unlikely of places in Lean on Pete, arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital) and DVD July 10 from Lionsgate. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years), the film, which Indiewire calls “a gem,” is a slice-of-life story about a teenage boy who sets out on an adventure to find a place called home. Starring in the Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh™ film are Charlie Plummer (The Dinner, All the Money in the World), Oscar® nominee Chloë Sevigny (Best Supporting Actress, Boys Don’t Cry, 1999), with Travis Fimmel (“Vikings,” Warcraft: The Beginning), and Golden Globe® winner Steve Buscemi (Best Actor, Television – Drama, “Boardwalk Empire,” 2011).

    Fifteen-year-old Charley (Charlie Plummer) finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean on Pete. The horse’s gruff owner, Del Montgomery (Steve Buscemi), and his seasoned jockey, Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny), help Charley fill the void of his absent father. But when Charley discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, he takes extreme measures to save him, as Charley and Pete embark on an unforgettable odyssey to find a place they can call home.

    The home entertainment release of Lean on Pete includes the “Searching for Home: Making Lean on Pete” featurette. The Lean on Pete Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $21.99 and $19.98, respectively.
