Based on his a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. 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 BEST FILM OF 2017!”-Dana Keith, Miami Beach Cinematheque

“CRITIC’S PICK: Utilizing a cast of non-actors—most of whom are tasked with playing versions of themselves, in a story pulled from their lives—Zhao’s film derives its power from the truth that both drives and inspires it, and the result is a WHOLLY UNIQUE SLICE OF LIFE DRAMA”-Kate Erbland, IndieWire
