Idris Elba has had success in the past with films based on real-life stories, and he'll be hoping for more of the same with this new Netflix release. The latest trailer for Concrete Cowboy is online, and you can watch it below.

When 15 year-old Cole (Caleb McLaughlin, best known for Stranger Things) is expelled from school in Detroit, he is sent to North Philadelphia to live with Harp (Elba), his estranged father. Harp finds solace in rehabilitating horses for inner city cowboys at the Fletcher Street Stables, a real-life black urban horsemanship community that has provided a safe haven for the neighborhood residents for more than 100 years. Torn between his growing respect for his father's community and his reemerging friendship with troubled cousin Smush (Jharrel Jerome), Cole begins to reprioritize his life as the stables themselves are threatened by encroaching gentrification.
