Lean on Pete (15)

British director Andrew Haigh makes the most of vast American landscapes in this moving film. 15 year-old Charley (brilliantly played by Charlie Plummer) – abandoned by his broken family – gets a summer job working for a dodgy horse-trainer (Steve Buscemi) and falls for fading racehorse Pete. When Pete is destined for the knackers’ yard, Charley has a different idea.
