In her new film, director Chloé Zhao, whose feature debut Songs My Brothers Taught Me was screened at the Festival in 2016, masterfully combines the reality of daily life with the magic of cinema. The film follows young rider Brady who is trying to recover after a near fatal rodeo accident. When it becomes clear that he can no longer ride a horse, he desperately starts questioning his existence. Zhao, who recalls Terence Malick with her visual world, Cassavetes with her momentary approach, and Kelly Reichardt with her social observations, turns a slice from the life of a real cowboy, who plays himself, into a visual marvel that realistically critics American masculinity.
