Benny Safdie & Josh Safdie, USA 2017
Good Time is a hypnotising crime thriller about family and fate. The Safdie Brothers (Benny and Joshua) blast you with an adrenaline rush and draw you into a New York night you will never forget. Following in the footsteps of Scorsese and Coppola, they create pure cutting-edge cinema.
After a failed attempt to rob a bank, with younger brother Nick (Benny Safdie) being apprehended, Connie (Robert Pattinson) desperately tries to raise the bail to set Nick free. His plan, however, veers off the track, crashing in spectacular fashion, dragging along everyone in its path into the depths of chaotic violence.
Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Maps to the Stars) makes a resounding impression as Connie, ushering viewers onto a unending roller coaster ride of emotion together with him. Good Time was selected for the Cannes Film Festival competition, winning the award for best soundtrack.
