The Rider

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Chloé Zhao • 2018 • USA • Drama • 102 mins • Cert 15

After a tragic riding incident, young cowboy Brady, once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over. Determined to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and attempts to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

Filmed in the Badlands of South Dakota, director Chloé Zhao has elegantly formed a painful and poetic tour de force. Using non-actors to play the central characters, Zhao’s contemporary Western is a visually stunning and landmark film.
