In Chloé Zhao’s THE RIDER, a cowboy suffers an accident, effectively derailing his prospects of becoming a star of the rodeo circuit. With his dreams dashed, the young man must re-evaluate his life’s purpose.

 

Based on his a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

 

Critic Quotes:

“The Rider is the best film I’ve seen so far in 2018. It also feels like the announcement of a major artistic talent in Zhao.” – The Atlantic

“A vista-worshipping, socially observant, and altogether moving exploration of how difficult it is to be wise even when the alternative is statistically guaranteed death.” – Slate

“Ms. Zhao’s commitment to her craft – she knows how to take care and when to take risks – matches Brady’s.” – New York Times

“Zhao’s film derives its power from the truth that both drives it and inspires it, and the final result is a wholly unique slice-of-life drama.” – IndieWire

“The movie is soulful, elegant, filmed as often as not at the magic hour, when the sky is as broad as it is orange-yellow, and every nook of the world seems alight with possibility.” – Vanity Fair
