The Mustang isn't just for horse-loving people, even if you have ridden a horse only once in your life, you know the power and strength that is there, and the stubbornness and defiance that can be there, too.

The film excels when it considers ideas of forgiveness and resentment - in the grey areas between those dualities is where The Mustang finds the most human of truths.

An emotionally-engaging meditation on redemption inspired by a real-life program helping inmates turn their lives around.

A small film with a big punch... Schoenaerts' work is outstanding here.
April 16, 2019
It's one of the best films you've never heard of ... and one of the best films of the year.

The analogy between wild-spirited mustangs and incarcerated men who have lost their freedom is pretty standard stuff, yet the nuances of character, story and subtle, yet profoundly felt emotion keep viewers involved.

Filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre has created an enticing tale that's meditative and redemptive.
April 5, 2019
Basing her story on a real-life program that takes place in Nevada and other states, freshman feature director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre and a horde of co-screenwriters craft a story about bonding with horses that's uplifting and refreshingly candid.

Matthias Schoenaerts gives a convincing, frightening performance as a feral beast himself. Bruce Dern offers a complement as Myles, alternately cajoling and correcting inmates.
April 1, 2019
[A] nicely acted and ultimately moving drama.

Quiet but compelling, The Mustang is a character-study that gallops confidently on a journey through the human spirit of a broken man.

"The Mustang" has horsepower to spare.

If you're thematically inclined it won't be difficult to identify the movie's interest in masculinity, as well as in exploring the often lopsided equation between freedom and self-discipline.
March 30, 2019
Undeniably well-made, it feels like it's critiquing one audience's set of assumptions about violence and masculinity while catering to another's.
March 29, 2019
Thankfully nothing about The Mustang is heavy handed.
March 29, 2019
It's called 'The Mustang' and follows 'The Rider' and 'Lean on Pete' as movies which succumb to the marvel of horses and their remarkable healing powers.

"A compelling story from a director that is definitely one to watch!"

Suffers somewhat by comparison to The Rider. But Belgian Matthias Schoenaerts is terrific as convict who bonds with wild horse.
March 29, 2019
There's a Disney movie in here somewhere, but Clermont-Tonnerre has no interest in it. She's too busy steering her own course, and it works.
