SYNOPSIS

'After a tragic riding accident, young cowboy Brady (played by real-life rodeo Brady Jandreau), discovers that his rodeo competition days are over. Back home, Brady finds himself looking for a new purpose to his life. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for a new identity and tries to refine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

Set in contemporary South Dakota, Chloé Zhao’s second feature is a lyrical study of the space between desire and reality, grounded in an acutely observed collaboration between Zhao and the experiences of her non-professional actors. Magically lensed by cinematographer Joshua James Richards, this is a stunning work.' Queensland Film Festival
