A teenager gets a summer job working for a horse trainer and befriends the fading racehorse, Lean on Pete.
A man on the bus toward the end of the film can be seen reading The Motel Life (2012), the first book (and first book to be adapted into a film) by author Willy Vlautin, who also wrote the novel on which Lean on Pete is based.
Can I ask you a question?
Charley: Why do you let him treat you like that?
Laurie: I don't have anywhere else to go.
Laurie: And... when you don't have anywhere else to go... you're kinda stuck.
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.
