About

An aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr.), hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker), who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years – and injuries – have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider (Moises Arias), who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.

Reviews

  • "The film’s lived-in craftsmanship provides structure in an unstable world. Collins’ superb performance gives it soul."
    - The Playlist
  • "Jockey is a solid piece of work that reflects on who we are and what we leave behind, as well as the prices we pay to get there."
