The Rider

“A horse’s purpose is to run in the prairies; a cowboy’s is to ride.” So, what does a cowboy become when he can no longer ride? This is the question at the centre of ChloĆ© Zhao’s The Rider, and the defining conflict for its protagonist, Brady Blackburn. A skilled rodeo cowboy and horse trainer, Brady suffers a near-fatal accident that abruptly halts his career and forces him to contemplate what a new life could look like. (Kerri Craddock, TIFF)
