Based on a 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.

In telling the story of a disappearing slice of America, Zhao has created a portrait of resilience, and the bonds that last even after the rodeo's over.
Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture
The Rider marries the majestic vistas of the greatest American westerns with a deeply interior story of a cowboy having to renegotiate his identity.
Ben Croll, TheWrap
It's difficult to describe the immense weight that descends upon you when you realize you're seeing real Indian reservation cowboys moving through a lightly fictionalized version of their lives.
April Wolfe, L.A. Weekly
A masterpiece about the human condition.
