Rider, The

Director Chloé Zhao took out the Oscars Best Picture + Best Director for the exquisite Nomadland, and now Cinema Nova is bringing back a retrospective season of the filmmaker's 2017 drama THE RIDER - winner of 24 awards including Best Feature at the Gotham Awards, Hamburg Film Festival and Athens Film Festival. Based on a true story, THE RIDER stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once-rising star of the rodeo circuit, warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady 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. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for a new identity, and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
