JOCKEY | Official Trailer (2021)


An aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr.), hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker), who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years – and injuries – have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream. Powered by terrific performances, Jockey manages to both lean into the tropes of the sports drama while still painting them in an entirely new light. It is a meditation on mortality, a love letter from a filmmaker son to his own father and a testament to the power of being recognized, truly seen and remembered. D: Clint Bentley, US, 2021
