Concrete Cowboy American Western Drama Film Is Streaming Online Watch on Netflix, With English Subtitles, Release Date 2nd April 2021.
Developed from the novel Ghetto Cowboy by Greg Neri, who was in turn inspired to write this novel after learning about a few true stories about ‘Black’ American Cowboys. Despite the West’s portrayal of the all-white American cowboys on the big screen, black cowboys actually constituted around 25% of American cowboys, back in the mid-19th century.
The movie follows a young 15 year old boy from Detroit who keeps getting in trouble at school. Fed up with his behavior, his mother sends him to Philadelphia to spend his summer with his non-existent father. Apprehensive with his living conditions at first – he is forced to sleep in the living room, where his father’s horse slept as well; he eventually warms up to the creature, more so than he does with his father. With the help of his neighbour Nessi, he gets to work by clearing up the stables and taking care of the horses there. A great threat approaches the cowboys and their livelihoods, in the form of a real estate mogul, who plans to buy up the lands used by cowboys, who are planning on getting rid of the animals entirely.
