Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl) gives an intense powerhouse performance as a troubled man prone to violence, struggling to overcome his past, who finds hope in an unexpected direction.
“A wonderful, extremely heartfelt surprise.” – Perri Nemiroff, Collider
Roman (Schoenaerts) is a longtime convict in a prison in the Nevada desert, at odds with everyone, including his embittered teenage daughter (Gideon Adlon). While doing mandatory “outdoor maintenance,” he is recruited to join a rehabilitation program learning to train wild mustangs. He struggles to connect with the horses and his fellow inmates alike. But in time, working alongside young convict and skilled rider Henry (Jason Mitchell, Straight Outta Compton) and a wily old trainer Myles (Bruce Dern, Nebraska), Roman soothes an especially unbreakable horse and confronts his own violent past and inner demons. Also starring Connie Britton and Josh Stewart. Executive produced by Robert Redford. (Dir. by Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, 2019, France/USA, in English, 96 mins., Rated R)
