If you missed it in 2017 we're bringing Josh and Benny Safdie's brilliant Good Time back to the big screen.
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine "Connie" Nikas (Robert Pattinson, in a combustible performance) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city in an increasingly desperate - and dangerous - attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one night, Connie finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he battles both the clock and the city's underworld.
Soundtracked by a bracing, foreboding score by Oneohtrix Point Never, GOOD TIME is an intense, psychotic thriller crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. The Safdies' vision is by turns surreal and intoxicating, driven by an urgent intensity - and will burn in the memory long after the credits roll.
