Nancy & GiGi were in Miami last week for the screening of The Peanut Butter Falcon and chat with writers, directors, and lead actor of this powerful movie that is setting the bar for future films.  Just like Nancy made a promise to GiGi to change the way the world saw DS these guys made a promise to Zack that they would get him on the big screen and now YOU can see their promise come to fruition on August 23rd at theatres near you! Watch how they made their promise come true against all odds!
