Following the release of the trailer earlier this month, Focus Features has now also provided us with The Mustang poster, which you can view in the gallery below. The film is based on the true story of a convict who takes part in a rehabilitation program which breaks wild horses.
In The Mustang, Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts), a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an “outdoor maintenance” program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer (Bruce Dern) and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable mustang.
Return to Freedom is a national wild horse conservation organization. To learn more about America’s wild horses and how you can get involved in the effort to protect them, visit their website.

The cast of The Mustang includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Connie Britton, Bruce Dern, Jason Mitchell, Gideon Adlon and Josh Stewart.
