A compelling, scintillating scenario poetically referencing a true tale; Matthias Schoenaerts depicts hardened criminal Roman Coleman, whose rehabilitation rests on the back of an unbroken mustang; both are wild, volatile and caged; filmed with insightful prescience, elucidating neophytes to the massive benefits of Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) therapy;  a myriad of animals are employed in pet therapy, aiding individuals fighting depression, (PTSD), autism, physical detriments, psychological impairment, incarceration; director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s intimate portrait of a man and his mammal’s dual, synchronized conversion from untamed to domesticated is portentous; Schoenaerts profound performance rattles to the core.

Bruce Dern executes another “Dernian” incarnation as “Myles” a trainer entrenched in the mentality of both mustang and inmate. The training/breaking scenes required astounding, prodigious cinematography; locked eyes of Roman and Marcus sear the soul’s sensitivities.

“The Mustang”, is a lyrical, uplifting, empathetic testament to a lasting bond, that “no man can put asunder”.
