In July, the Washington Grove Film Society continues our experiment in sociable but social-distanced film appreciation and discussion via Zoom. The movie for July is The Rider.

Join the fun in 3 easy steps:

1. Before Sunday, July 26, enjoy watching The Rider.

After a tragic riding accident, a young rodeo cowboy searches for a new way to live in his world. The Rider has been described as cinematic poetry. It resurrects the Western, still a story of men and horses and vast landscapes, without nostalgia and with deep compassion. The Rider was included on numerous top 10 lists for 2018 and won the Best Picture award from the National Society of Film Critics. Directed by Chloé Zhao, 2017, US, 104 minutes

Watch The Rider free on your DirectTV subscription; for $2.99 on Amazon Prime, Fandango, Vudu, RedBox; or for $3.99 on Google Play, the Microsoft Store, or YouTube.

2. Send an email to Freda at [email protected] before July 25, to receive a link to the Zoom discussion.

3. Log in to Zoom at 7:30 pm on Sunday, July 26, to hear your neighbors’ thoughts about the movie, and share yours in a moderated discussion.
