With Matthias Schoenaerts, Jason Mitchell, Bruce Dern, Connie Britton. 97 minutes + trailers.
Matthias Schoenaerts (Far from the Madding Crowd) gives a quietly devastating performance in Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s bold, heartfelt directorial debut. Roman (Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison, initially bristles when a psychiatrist (Connie Britton) sentences him to a horse therapy program. But once there, he is tasked with taming an especially unbreakable mustang, with whom, gradually, he forms a meaningful bond. Beautifully shot, viscerally compelling and accompanied by a soaring score, The Mustang is a fearless, accomplished and incredibly promising debut.
