Main Trailer


  • "Quivoron’s feature debut is so singular, so thrilling, that it will hopefully escape without being sucked into the remake machine."
    - IndieWire
  • "RODEO is a combustible fusion of crime story, character study and existential mystery, a tale of celebration and lament, and it announces the arrival of a gifted and adventurous filmmaker."
    - The Hollywood Reporter
  • "[Quivoron] emerges as a formidably kinetic director, who could easily have a career making pedal-to-the-metal action movies - although her way with character and deep-dive exploration of working-class subculture suggest that she is way too individual to take a straight generic path."
    - Screen Daily
  • "RODEO is engaging and gritty, but what makes the whole film hold together overall is Ledru."
    - Austin Chronicle
  • "RODEO immerses you in a world of robbery, burnt tires, and exhaust. Director Lola Quivoron crafts a fiery protagonist. She captures the grease of chopping bikes in a confined space and the exhilaration of open road theatrics."
    - MovieWeb
  • " Ultimately, our high hopes for Julia, played with verve by newcomer Julie Ledru, keep us tethered to the action, while we urge her to swerve."
    - AWFJ.org
  • "A calling card for Lola Quivoron, proving she not only knows how to tell a good story, but can direct a feisty, riveting film with some fantastic driving scenes."
    - FirstShowing.net
  • "It's about finding a purpose beyond the status quo and the existential crisis born from being a part of a family that only fosters equality amongst those who are forced to serve. And there isn't a single inauthentic moment."
