Dir. Chloe Zhao. 2017, 104 mins. DCP. With Brady Jandreau, Mooney, Tim Jandreau, Milly Jandreau. After a tragic riding accident, young cowboy Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is told his competition days are over. Now that Brady can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose, he finds himself wondering what he has to live for. In an attempt to regain control of his life, Brady begins a search for new identity. Based on Brady Jandreau’s own life story and starring him and his family as fictionalized versions of themselves, The Rider is an exploration of manhood in the American heartland and what it means to have a calling. Director Chloe Zhao’s second feature amplifies one family’s true story into a tale of universal longing for purpose and identity.
