2017, USA, 104 min

Acclaimed at every major film festival from Sundance to Berlin, The Rider has won 13 major awards, including the Director’s Fortnight Award at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. A young cowboy named Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: riding and competing. 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.

Reviews

An entrancing, deeply moving effort, one that is certain to steal the hearts of audiences.
-Bradley Warren, The Playlist
The best film I've seen so far at Cannes....hauntingly lyrical...a work of heartbreaking beauty.
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
