“One of the most astonishing achievements of recent cinema … the film’s style, its sense of light and landscape and mood simultaneously give it the mesmerising force of the most confident cinematic poetry.” RogerEbert.com
Based on a true story and with a cast of mainly non-professional actors playing slightly fictionalised versions of themselves, The Rider follows the tragic and poignant struggle of a young rodeo cowboy as he comes to terms with the consequences of a life changing accident.
“a very impressive, very accomplished film.” Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
