Plot Summary

The film follows fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson. He wants a home, food on the table and a high school he can attend for more than part of the year. As the son of a single father working in warehouses across the Pacific Northwest, stability is hard to find. Hoping for a new start they move to Portland, Oregon where Charley takes a summer job, with a washed-up horse trainer, and befriends a failing racehorse named Lean on Pete.

Trivia Chloë Sevigny revealed that she was originally approached to play Charley's aunt, but her agent fought for her to play Bonnie because the latter character is a larger role with "more [for Sevigny] to sink her teeth into." See more »
Goofs Modern flat screen televisions are shown in at least 2 scenes, yet the film seems to be set in the 1990s, with old cell phones, pay phone, information operators, and older vehicles. See more »

Quotes Ray: You know, I was a cook for two years once I dropped out of school.
Charley: Yeah, I know.
Ray: It's no way to live, though. Getting up at four every morning. Getting hit by grease all day. People complaining, orders backing up. It's no way to live.
Charley: Yeah, but you get free food?
Ray: Yeah, you get free food. But let me tell you, you end up hating food. But there are waitresses. Hm. You like waitresses, don't you?
Charley: Yeah, I guess.
Ray: The best women... have all been waitresses at some point. So, what have you learned?
Charley: Don't be a cook.
Ray: Huh.
Charley: And...
Charley: ...go out with waitresses.
Ray: Boom. Besides being a hotshot athlete and getting a job... you're smart too.
