Josh and Benny Safdie have always been on the cusp, impressing many with earlier works like “Daddy Longlegs” and “Heaven Knows What.” Now, they’re getting ready for a larger spotlight with “Good Time,” helped in part by a lead turn from Robert Pattinson.
Featuring an intriguing supporting cast that includes “Captain Phillips” star Barkhad Abdi and Jennifer Jason Leigh, and a score by Oneohtrix Point Never, the story follows a young man who tries get his brother out of jail following a botched bank robbery. Here’s the official synopsis:
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Constantine 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.
“Good Time” opens on August 11th, and stay tuned for the first trailer tomorrow. For now, the poster is below. [Recent Movie Posters]
