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 (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized 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.
Part of Thrills & Chills, six thrillers with awesome electronic scores.
“An anthemic, youthful blast of generational pop art, Good Time is a 100 minute-long string of fire emojis, that begins and ends with a heart.” Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
“Propelled by a Rob Pattinson tour de force, this Safdie brothers fireball rips through 100 minutes of screen time like Wile E. Coyote with his tail on fire. It comes at you hard so you remember.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
