The Mustang tells the story of Roman Coleman (Matthias Schoenaerts – Red Sparrow), a violent convict, who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program involving the training of wild mustangs.
However, I’m not wildly sold on this as it just seems to degenerate into a sickly-sweet family drama.
The film is shot in a rarely-used 1.66:1 aspect ratio, according to the IMDB, although that’s not reflected in the trailer where it’s 1.85:1.
The Mustang is selected for Robert Redford‘s Sundance film festival in 2019, but it’s released in the US on March 15th 2019, although as of yet, there’s no UK date.
