The Mustang
First screened in April 2019
Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. Cast: Matthias Schoenaerts, Bruce Dern, Jason Mitchell, Gideon Adlon, Connie Britton, Josh Stewart, Thomas Smittle, Keith Johnson, Noel Gugliemi. Screenplay: Brock Norman Brock and Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.

Twitter Capsule: Schoenaerts is good, if sorta typecast. Film has some austere power but more often feels underrealized. Murky themes.

VOR:   The final shot of the horse distills the movie's loyalty to predictable iconography and easy simile. Not unaffecting, but hardly original.
