After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas embarks on a twisted odyssey through New York City’s underworld in an increasingly desperate-and dangerous-attempt to get his brother out of jail.
Following the mind-bending HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT, celebrated filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie return to the mean streets of New York City with GOOD TIME, a hypnotic crime thriller that explores with bracing immediacy the tragic sway of family and fate. After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine “Connie” Nikas embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate — and dangerous — attempt to get his brother Nick out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalised night, Connie finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance. Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, GOOD TIME is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Benny Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
Starring Robert Pattinson, Benny Safdie, Taliah Webster
Cannes Film Festival 2017 – Nominated Palme d’Or
“At once a swift, relentless chase thriller and an exhilarating mood piece that recalls the great, gritty crime dramas of Sidney Lumet and Abel Ferrara, GOOD TIME is also exactly what it says it is: a thrill, a blast, a fast-acting tonic of a movie.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times.
“Wildly exciting… a directing tour de force” – Dave Calhoun, Time Out.
GOOD TIME is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
