“’I’m not good with people,’ Roman Colman mumbles early on in The Mustang. That’s a fair understatement. Newly transferred to a Nevada state penitentiary, Roman is a seething, silent powder keg who can hardly be bothered to acknowledge other people even exist—until he explodes in sudden bursts of fury… So when a well-intentioned administrator helps get him into a program breaking the wild horses that run free in the nearby desert, it doesn’t seem promising; how can one feral animal tame another? That’s where a fellow inmate and a grizzled trainer (Bruce Dern) come in; it’s their job to draw Roman out, one painstaking paddock session at a time. Filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre brings a gorgeous, wide-open sparseness to her visual storytelling, but it’s largely Schoenaerts’ movie to carry. And the Belgian-born actor is immensely watchable.”—Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
