Between romantic comedy, western and New Hollywood, an amazing film with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda
New HD restoration
A former rodeo world champion on the loose, Sonny Steele is now selling his image for a cereal brand. In Las Vegas, where his next show is taking place, he discovers that his mount, a magnificent thoroughbred worth millions of dollars, has been drugged by its owner. Revolted, Sonny flees with the horse in order to set him free. Television journalist Hallie Martin thinks she has a golden subject there and sets off in pursuit of the cowboy...
For his fifth collaboration with Sydney Pollack, Robert Redford embodies Sonny Steele, a protest hero in the tradition of Jeremiah Johnson . The director of Out of Africa passionately embraces this man's fight against an America threatened by cynicism and the power of money. Ecological fable with grandiose landscapes, romantic road-movie sublimated by its star couple Robert Redford / Jane Fonda, The Electric Rider is to be discovered for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD.
