The Mustang finds fresh perspectives in a familiar redemption tale brought brilliantly to life by powerful performances from Bruce Dern and Matthias Schoenaerts.

It's Schoenaerts, one of this generation's finest actors, who makes "The Mustang" a moving look at human potential for redemption and rehabilitation.
A testament to the worthy stories yet to be told about the healing, unbreakable bonds between tormented people and the misunderstood animals that come to their rescue.
I've been lucky enough to see equine therapy up close, and The Mustang brought the sensation back of having to slow down and breathe with a horse and in the process leave yourself behind.
Her film is about a relationship forged in a give-and-take that treats beast and human as emotional equals.
You can't help but be swept up by the sincerity here -- that and the sight of a hard man softening to a sympathetic nuzzle.
Filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre's story of a troubled convict (an incendiary, indelible Matthias Schoenaerts) bonding with a wild mustang is a striking debut. Each time you think you have this movie pegged, it'll knock you for a loop.
On the surface, de Clermont-Tonnerre has a handsomely staged minimalist melodrama on her hands, but its juxtaposed tangents seem to demand either more lavish emotional interiority or less attenuation to anything outside the narrative fringe...
Amid some tangential narrative contrivances, the intimate interaction between man and beast is poignant.
Involving story of struggle & redemption thru program where tough men work with wild horses in prison. Actors, horses and Nevada scenery are gorgeous, rises above docudrama.
Stunning mountain vistas and first-rate performances... make The Mustang worth the ride.
Despite a fine performance by Schoenaerts the movie is extraordinarily slow and tedious until the last half hour.
De Clermont-Tonnerre has penned a credible screenplay about these prisoners and their horses which clearly demonstrates the value of programs such as these.
