Dallas and Lee continue on with A24's 2018 filmography with Lean on Pete and Backstabbing for Beginners.
In Lean on Pete, the teenage Charley befriends Lean on Pete, an ageing racehorse, when he arrives in Portland. When Charley learns that the horse is bound for slaughter, he tries to save him.
Backstabbing for Beginners is based on the real life story of Michael Soussan, a young United Nations employee, travels to Iraq with his mentor, who wants to show him how successful the UN's Oil-for-Food Program has been. When Michael gets a deeper look at the organization, he unveils a corruption conspiracy in which officials -- both inside and outside of the UN -- are skimming billions off the top of the aid meant for the Iraqi people.
