Whatever happened to the American cowboy?

Displaying the same sense of documentary realism that marked her debut feature SONGS MY BROTHERS TAUGHT ME (2015) director Chloé Zhao turns her focus to the working class and young rodeo rider Brady Blackburn. Having recently suffered a severe head injury, Brady is supposed to stay far away from the rodeo, but in an area without jobs or prospects, the rodeo is the only thing that offers young men like him a sense of pride and accomplishment. THE RIDER juxtaposes the myth of the Hollywood cowboy with the harsh socioeconomic realities of the modern-day Midwest.
