Matthias Schoenaerts gives a wonderfully subtle performance in this moving drama, based on a true story.

Roman Coleman is halfway through serving an 11-year sentence in a Nevada jail when he is selected to participate in a wild horse training programme as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Under the watchful eye of Myles, who simultaneously serves as the programme’s head trainer and a father figure to the inmates, Roman is paired with a particularly difficult horse who mirrors his symptoms of aggression, fear and anxiety. 

Running time: 1h57, including ads and trailers.
