In the movie The Rider, after a tragic riding accident, young cowboy Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over.
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.
The Rider was the official selection at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, Directors’ Fortnight (Best Picture), 2017 Telluride Film Festival, 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, and the 2017 New York Film Festival.
