Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has set release dates for Jockey, a film festival favorite about an aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr.) and his quest for one last win.
The film will be released through digital retailers on March 29 and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 5.
Collins portrays veteran jockey Silva, who hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker), 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), who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.
Filmed at a real racetrack in Arizona, and featuring real jockeys, Jockey was an official selection at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, where Collins won a U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Best Actor.
It also was an official selection at the 2021 SCAD Savannah Film Festival, where Collins was honored with a Distinguished Performance Award; the
2021 Toronto International Film Festival, the 2021 Hamptons International Film Festival, and the 2021 AFI Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award in the Narrative Feature Film category.
