A rising star of the rodeo circuit, warned his riding days are over after he suffers a debilitating injury, struggles to redefine what it means to be a man on the austere plains of South Dakota. A beautiful film as laconic and uncompromising as its protagonist, The Rider reveals aching emotion in its moments of profound stillness.
“Both romanticizes and demythologizes the Cowboy Way in a corner of America where that still means something” (Movie Nation).
Introduced by John Munson.
