Winner of the Coup de Coeur prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Lola Quivoron's debut feature film is set in the thrilling underworld of motor-cross racing in the Parisian suburbs. Julie Leary starts as Julia, a self-reliant young woman who is drawn into these illegal urban "Rodeos". Her passionate and fearless riding challenge the macho culture as she seeks to find a place in this outcast community.
Thanks to Curzon
Boasting superb stunt work, a transfixing performance from Leary and fusing together a crime drama and a soulful existential mystery, Rodeo announces the arrival of a gifted and adventurous film maker.
A calling card for Lola Quivoron, proving she not only knows how to tell a good story, but can direct a feisty, riveting film with some fantastic driving scenes.
