The Mustang

  • Starring: Connie Britton, Josh Stewart, Matthias Schoenaerts
  • Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre
  • Genre(s): Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 96 min.

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.

"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
"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
