The Rider’s hard-hitting drama is only made more effective through writer-director ChloĆ© Zhao’s use of untrained actors to tell the movie’s fact-based tale. Based on his 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. Filmed in South Dakota.

The best way to enjoy cinema magic is to see it with others and share the experience of unique films. Laugh together, cry together, learn together, applaud together.
