Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an “outdoor maintenance” program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable mustang.

"You can't help but be swept up by the sincerity here -- that and the sight of a hard man softening to a sympathetic nuzzle."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"The director has a good eye for semidocumentary detail, and the performances... all have the sharp tang of authenticity."
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Whatever language he works in, Schoenaerts is a singular talent who can convincingly convey danger and menace as naturally as he breathes."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"It's Schoenaerts, one of this generation's finest actors, who makes "The Mustang" a moving look at human potential for redemption and rehabilitation."
- Sara Stewart, New York Post
"It’s a touching and original piece of bare-bones sentimental humanism, and Schoenaerts is terrific in it. "
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
"De Clermont-Tonnerre shows admirable restraint, knowing that, in her carefully constructed frames, it can be enough just to get Roman's newly compassionate eyes into a close-up with the expressionless eye of a horse."
- John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"Matthias Schoenaerts and a wild stallion try to tame each other in this stirring and poetic prison drama about a man and his horse."
- David Ehrlich, indieWire
"This film was developed at Robert Redford's Sundance Institute lab for emerging talent; he certainly found one in French actress Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, here making an impressive feature directorial debut."
- Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"That sophistication in filmmaking and storytelling wins out in the end. The answers don't come easy, and when they do they're more than a little heartbreaking. "The Mustang" is all the better for it."
- Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic
"A testament to the worthy stories yet to be told about the healing, unbreakable bonds between tormented people and the misunderstood animals that come to their rescue."
- Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
"Filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre's story of a troubled convict (an incendiary, indelible Matthias Schoenaerts) bonding with a wild mustang is a striking debut. Each time you think you have this movie pegged, it'll knock you for a loop."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"First-time feature filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre brings a gorgeous, wide-open sparseness to her visual storytelling (it makes sense that Robert Redford, the original Sundance Kid, is listed as an executive producer), but it’s largely Schoenaerts’ movie to carry. "
- Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
