The filmmaker, Clint Bentley, brings a little bit about his childhood in his new film, Jockey. With Greg Kwedar as a co-writer to put together the touching story of life behind the race tracks. Starring Clifton Collins Jr. And Molly Parker.

 

The Synopsis 

An aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr.Star Trek”), hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker, “Deadwood”), who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years – and injuries – have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider (Moises Arias, “Ender’s Games”), who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.
