A Wounded Cowboy Gets Back On The Horse In 'The Rider'

Following a rodeo accident, Brady Jandreau refused to quit riding and training wild horses — even it if meant risking his life. He plays a version of himself in director Chloe Zhao's slightly fictionalized retelling of his story. The director and star talk about the accident, recovery and making of 'The Rider.' Film critic Justin Chang reviews the film as well.
