Chloé Zhao’s award-winning impressionistic drama casts real-life wrangler Brady Jandreau as a South Dakota cowboy struggling to chart a new course after a terrible injury sustained in the saddle. “A horse’s purpose is to run in the prairies; a cowboy’s is to ride.” So, what does a cowboy become when he can no longer ride? This is the question at the heart of The Rider. Retaining a docudrama aesthetic, Zhao integrates the real lives of her actors into her storytelling and creates something truly transcendent that explores both notions of masculinity and the mythology of the American west. A truly, astonishingly beautiful film.

Dir. Chloé Zhao, US, 2018, 104 mins. Cast. Brady Jandreau, Lane Scott, Lily Jandreau.
