The Rider

USA, 2017, 104mins, Cert.15

Film description

Set against dusty, expansive landscapes, Chloé Zhao's The Rider is a beautifully made, indisputably authentic film, exploring what it means to be a man in modern-day America - and was one of our favourites of 2018.

After suffering a near fatal head injury, South Dakota cowboy Brady - played by real-life rodeo star Brady Jandreau - is told he must give up the sport. Without it, he must seek a new identity and a new place in the world. 

Enhanced by non-professional, familial casting, Zhao has created a film that feels part drama, part documentary, full of heart and humanity, and one we're delighted to be shining a light on once more this March.
