Imagine a movie so sweet that you can recommend it to literally anyone.
It’s really hard to find a movie that you can watch with the whole family. You want it to be entertaining, interesting, impart a lesson, and it can’t have anything objectionable or too offensive. When I recommend films to people, I try to take all this stuff into account.
But when I saw The Peanut Butter Falcon, I finally knew a title that transcended those caveats.
I would tell anyone to watch this movie. I think watching it might make them a better person. And I’m not being hyperbolic—if you’ve seen it, then you know.
After premiering at SXSW, the Audience Award-winning The Peanut Butter Falcon is now streaming on Amazon Prime. Of course, none of that would have happened without a stellar screenplay.
Today, I want to go over the movie’s script and talk about what makes it such a wonderful story and an excellent piece of writing.
