After a tragic riding accident, a young cowboy 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. He undertakes a search for new identity and what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

MUBI's take

In a masterful blend of documentary and fiction, The Rider’s characters play themselves in an intimate retelling of their own lives. Mental health and the pressures of masculinity are gracefully explored in Chloe Zhao’s contemporary take on the Western genre, set in the patriarchal world of rodeo.
