Hot-tempered and fiercely independent, Julia finds escape in a passion for motorcycles and the high-octane world of urban ‘Rodeos’-illicit gatherings where riders show off their bikes and their latest daring stunts. After a chance meeting at a Rodeo, Julia finds herself drawn into a clandestine and volatile clique and, striving to prove herself to the ultra-masculine group, she is faced with a series of escalating demands that will make or break her place in the community.
Director Lola Quivoron's first feature film premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes 2022, where it won the Jury Coup de Cœur, and also received both the Jury Prize and Critics’ Prize at the prestigious Champs-Élysées Film Festival.
Described by Indiewire as "one part Titane, one part Fast & Furious, and one part Girlhood" Rodeo is high-octane life-affirming filmmaking at its most realistic and visceral.
