The Rider

Body

After suffering a near fatal head injury, young South Dakota cowboy Brady (played by Brady Jandreau, a rodeo star on whose real-life story the narrative is based) is told he must give up the sport. Without it, he must seek a new identity, exploring what it means to be a man in the heartland.

Chloé Zhao's film blends docudrama, narrative and stunning Terrence Malick-esque cinematography, further enhanced by non-professional, familial casting (Jandreau’s real-life sister and father play Brady’s, and injured rodeo rider Lane Scott plays himself) in a way that continually integrates the lives of the actors into the film, so they seem to be not so much performing as movingly investigating alternative versions of themselves.
