Storyline

Brady Blackburn, a rodeo bronc rider with some renown, learned everything he knows about horses and riding from his parents, Wayne and the now deceased Mari Blackburn. Brady is recovering from a fall off a bronking horse in a rodeo, the most serious of the injuries being a skull fracture which required a metal plate being inserted into his head. Including checking himself out of the hospital earlier than advised, Brady is determined to get back up onto the literal and proverbial horse as quickly as possible as being a cowboy is all he knows. But deep in his heart he knows that returning to the rodeo in particular is something that is probably not in the cards without increased risks, which is eventually confirmed by his doctor who tells him that he cannot sustain another serious head injury without some major consequence.

A truly great movie that brought me to tears
13 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I love big budget blockbusters like Black Panther and Infinity Wars but there is a special place in my heart for the little guy with the little film with a little budget that can still bring the story home. I do not usually like sad stories. I firmly believe that movies should first entertain and then teach a lesson just like the best children's story. This is sometimes painful to watch but you have to root for Brady Blackburn. The shots of the Badlands are spectacular, the emotion heartfelt and the filmmaker's vision realized.
