Add one part 'Titane,' one part 'Fast & Furious,' and one part 'Girlhood,' and you'll have some idea of the raw power of Quivoron's feature debut.



Hot-tempered and fiercely independent, Julia (Julie Ledru) is a gearhead who thrives in hostile environments and turns every situation to her advantage. She has a talent for scamming condescending men who think it’s cute that she shows interest in their used motorbikes–and can’t fathom her riding away with gleeful abandon. Her obsession with the high-octane world of urban ‘Rodeos’ - illicit gatherings where riders show off their bikes and latest daring stunts - sparks a chance meeting with a volatile clique. Julia strives to prove herself to the ultra-masculine gang by performing cons and running errands for their incarcerated ring leader, Dom. She finds a surprising connection with Dom’s wife, Ophélie (Antonia Buresi), and son, a risky move that puts a target on her back. Julia is unsure who she can trust as the ultimate heist comes down the pike.

"Rodeo has both commercial and festival traction, and places Quivoron high on this year’s list of new directors with potential to burn." - Jonathan Romney, Screen International

The strife and hustle of the Parisian suburbs have been portrayed onscreen before — never, though, through the eyes of a protagonist as uncategorizable as the one in Lola Quivoron’s exhilarating genre mashup. Her name is Julia, but within the brotherhood of outlawed dirt bike “rodeos” where she ...
