Vic Edwards (Burt Reynolds) is an aging movie star whose best career days are well in the rearview mirror in the new movie The Last Movie Star. He’s pretty much resigned to talking about the glory days and wondering why he isn’t more loved.
One day he receives an invitation to a “film festival” in Nashville where he’s being given a lifetime achievement award. With no real reason to decline he heads down. With a young woman named Lil (Ariel Winter) as his guide and chauffeur, Vic finds there are worse ways to spend your days than telling old war stories to a bunch of young movie fans, thrilling them with tales of the old Hollywood ways. In addition to that, Vic decides to mend some personal fences before it’s too late.
Charlie Plummer plays Charley Thompson in the new movie Lean on Pete, getting a limited release this week. Charley lives with his father as the two of them travel one place to another as dictated by his father’s ability to find work. When they arrive in Portland Charley gets work at a local racetrack where he meets Del (Steve Buscemi), the owner of a horse named Lean on Pete as well as the horse’s jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny). Everything is going well as Charley feels some attention and acceptance.
Unfortunately he learns Lean on Pete is destined for the slaughterhouse soon. Unable to imagine the horse meeting that fate and unwilling to accept another change, Charley takes the horse and sets off on his own, searching for an aunt he only vaguely knows in the hopes she’ll provide both sanctuary and stability. That leads to a series of adventures that mean Charley has a lot of growing up to do quickly.
