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 and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider, 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. With Connie Britton and Bruce Dern.
“It shouldn’t work—none of it—not the metaphor, not the wild horse, not what it all means for the wild man at the center. It does.” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“Each time you think you have this movie pegged, it’ll knock you for a loop.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“The Mustang has an arc you can trace, but you will not, I promise you, predict the final shot, and it’s a beauty—a tearjerker as delicate as they come.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
