The Rider

The Rider ★★★★

Possibly the most human film of the year. Every moment feels so tender and earnest, every character flawed and real yet easily relatable, easy to route for. The cinematography blows you away but it’s the little things that stick in your mind, I honestly could have just watched a whole film of Brady training horses. It loses some of its subtlety in the third act but that didn’t stop it from having a profound effect on me. A really powerful film.
