The subculture of metropolitan and African American cowboys is at the center of the drama ‘Concrete Cowboy’ , which is streaming on Netflix on Friday April 2nd. In the cast stand out Idris Elba (seen in ‘Luther’) and Caleb McLaughlin (‘Stranger Things’) and the critics have spoken well.

Concrete Cowboy, all about the film

The plot revolves around a 15-year-old black man who lives in Detroit and is sent to stay by his father in Philadelphia: boy and parent have not seen each other for a long time and are practically strangers , but somehow they have to learn to get along. In the context of this family story we find the community in which the man lives, that is, that of the city cowboys, heirs of a tradition that has its roots in the Old West.

The director and screenwriter of ‘Concrete Cowboy’ is called Ricky Staub , who makes his debut in both roles and is in the writing phase was joined by Dan Walser , also at his first feature film. The two worked from Greg Neri’s novel ‘Ghetto Cowboy’ and had collaborated previously thanks to the short film ‘The Cage’ (2017), which had given them a certain credibility in the circle of independent productions.
In cast, alongside the aforementioned Idris Elba and Caleb McLaughlin , we find Lorraine Toussaint (‘Rosewood’, ‘Selma’), Jharrel Jerome (‘When They See Us’), Byron Bowers (‘Honey Boy’) and Clifford ‘Method Man’ Smith (‘The Deuce’).

Reviews and how to look the film

‘Concrete Cowboy’ was presented in world premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival and therefore we know the response of the present critics. In general the bulk of the reviewers agree in a fully sufficient vote , but without enthusiasm. The cast and the ability of the film to shed light on a cultural and social reality ignored by most were appreciated, but it left the general narrative structure perplexed, which to some seemed unable to get to the bottom of the story it tells and its characters. . Overall, however, a worthwhile feature film.
Who would like to give this film a chance to know that lasts 1 hour and 51 minutes and that viewing is only recommended for adult subscribers. For the rest, just wait until April 2, the day of inclusion in the Netflix streaming content catalog.
