Lean on Pete, a story about a teenage boy who sets out on an adventure to find a home, arrives on Blu-ray (plus digital) and DVD July 10 from Lionsgate.
The film stars Charlie Plummer (The Dinner, All the Money in the World), Oscar nominee Chloë Sevigny (Best Supporting Actress, Boys Don’t Cry, 1999), Travis Fimmel (“Vikings,” Warcraft: The Beginning), and Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi (Best Actor, Television – Drama, “Boardwalk Empire,” 2011).
Charley (Plummer), 15, finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging horse named Lean on Pete.

But when Charley discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, he takes extreme measures to save him.
