The Rider

Buy Tickets

Double Feature with LEAVE NO TRACE

2018 • dir Chloé Zhao w/Brady Jandreau, Lilly Jandreau, Tim Jandreau, Lane Scott • 104 min • DCP

Dramatically blurring the lines between fiction and reality, Chloé Zhao’s miraculous film uses non-professional actors to tell a story about a talented young rodeo rider who suffers a traumatic brain injury and must decide whether to pursue his passion and face death or live a more mundane life to help support his family.

Staff Pick: Jessie

“‘The Rider’ reinvigorates tropes from the western genre of men, horses, honor codes and vast expanses of nature with a refreshing lack of sentimentality, without sacrificing their inherent lyricism and poetry.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Zhao turns material that might have been treacly and simple-minded into an allegory of male identity…with the quality of myth.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
