These are vivid, flawed, even introspective characters. And they're classic American strivers. With rodeo, but not just that, they hope to go beyond where they have been.
There's enough rosy-cheeked drama, triumph, and sacrifice for a ready-made Hollywood remake.
Interesting but uncritically na´ve look at male and female convicts in Oklahoma, competing in one of the nation's last two prison rodeos.
There's a potentially more interesting follow-up doc ghosting right behind this one.
