The Rider

You might enjoy the movie, The Rider.  It has real cowboys in it.  You think "Oh no!"  But it is directed by a woman.  It shows a young man, with no education but rodeo riding.  It is who he is, and he gets injured and is not supposed to ride again.  But cowboys ride.  That is who they are.  But even more so, this movie shows a genuinely good man.  See how he cares for his mentally challenged sister.  He shows tender care for his bronco buddy who is debilitated from a rodeo accident.  Brady does not seem to need to get women into bed, to show he is a man.  He does not use people for his own benefit.  He has a belief in a God.  He has friends.  What will his decision be about riding again and why?  Well, you will have to see the movie.  Got lots of awards.  And who are you?  Are you living out who you are to the best you can?  Maybe you are a better person than you think you are.  Brady is.
