The Rider

Director: Chloé Zhao
Starring: Tim Jandreau, Lilly Jandreau, Brady Jandreau
Duration: 104 min

This true story sees real-life rodeo rider Brady Jandreau deliver a heart-stirring performance as a bronco rider who suffers a serious head injury at a bull-riding competition. When doctors advise against his ever competing again, Brady’s left searching for a purpose in life – for what’s the use of a cowboy who can’t ride or rodeo? The film is set on the wide and windy Dakota prairie, where Brady lives in a trailer with his sister (Lilly Jandreau) and their father (Tim Jandreau), all members of a Sioux family that has seen its share of hardship. The actors are non-professional, each playing a version of their real selves. A powerful blending of fact and fiction, and one man’s search for identity in the wreckage of the American dream.
