Good Time is the latest film from white-hot indie directors Josh Safdie and Ben Safdie – The Sadie Brothers (Heaven Knows What, Daddy Longlegs). Fresh from both the recent Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals where it received hot buzz and roaring enthusiasm, it’s a deliriously unpredictable and electrifying thriller.
After a botched bank robbery lands his vulnerable younger brother in prison, small-time hustler Connie (Robert Pattinson) is plunged into the buzzing labyrinth of New York’s underworld in an increasingly desperate attempt to free the only family he has.
With an award-winning score by Oneohtrix Point Never and breakout performances from Pattinson and Ben Safdie as Connie’s brother Nick, Good Time recalls the grit and urgency of ‘70s New Hollywood films such as Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Dog Day Afternoon. It also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Good Time is anchored by Robert Pattinson’s magnificent lead performance. As the city conspires against him, Pattinson’s breathless portrayal of Connie’s mounting desperation drives the story with whirlwind pace and energy — culminating in what many are calling the star’s finest performance to date.
Good Time opens at Dendy Cinemas Newtown (and Opera Quays) on Oct 12. MA15+ View the trailer here
