    An adaptation film of Willy Vlautin´s novel, by Andrew Haigh well-known for [#i_]45 Years[_i#](2015) Charley lives a lonely life. His father is not affectionate to him and has a hard time with his own affairs. Charley accidentally meets the horse trainer and broker Del, who offers him a job to take care of and train a horse. Charley is affectionate to the horse, Pete, whom he met there. But when Charley finds out that Pete will be sold, he buys Pete and leaves to look for their place to rest. [#i_]Lean on Pete[_i#] talks about love and loneliness, family and friendship through the relationship between a boy and a racehorse. While this kind of human drama highlights human problems by treating animals as means, the film deals with the communication between humans and animals on equal terms. As in previous works, Haigh creates a balance between melancholy and optimism. [JANG Byungwon]
