High-octane and heart-pounding, Lola Quivoron’s debut plunges audiences into France’s underground motocross scene as a determined young woman attempts to infiltrate a predominantly male gang of riders. Winner of the Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2022.
Julia (Julie Ledru) is a wild-at-heart ruffian who carelessly rides without rules because that’s all she has. When she meets a group of fellow riders – all men – at a local rodeo, their hostility and disapproval are palpable. But after a terrible accident tosses the volatile group together, Julia is granted fragile entry into a world that might be uniquely suited to her mannerless charms.
With incredible stunt work from Ledru and the rest of the cast — shepherded by veteran stunt expert Mathieu Lardot, (Jason Bourne
franchise), this thrilling story daringly balances the tenderness of a misunderstood community while also trying to break its stereotypes.
