On June 24, The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) revealed that Stranger Things' Caleb McLaughlin's upcoming movie, Concrete Cowboys, will be premiering at its 2020 lineup.
Fans will already know that Caleb stars in an upcoming movie, Concrete Cowboys. It focuses on a 15-year-old boy, Cole (Caleb), who moves to live with his estranged father. In North Philadelphia, Cole learns about the local urban cowboys, a place of refuge from the violent and poverty-stricken neighbourhood.
