Saves the worst for last, as the plot kicks into gear during the third act and blunts the film's delicate emotional texture into a contrived drumbeat of dull choices.

LaBeouf brings the soul to "The Peanut Butter Falcon," while Gottsagen brings the spirit. He has an undeniably charming screen presence, and the actor takes to this starring role with gusto.

Gottsagen is a disarming performer who creates a sweet and funny character.

Sure, Scarlett Johansson could probably have played the role (as well as any of the trees in the background). But if you seek a good example of why diversity in casting and conception makes for a richer cinema landscape, look no further.

LaBeouf holds the screen with natural allure, making every twinge of his character's self-reproach, and every instant of his dawning joy, achingly felt. His nuanced performance propels this journey.
