Say what you want about Robert Pattinson, but he’s doing everything in his power to make you forget about his turn in the Twilight film series. And it’s been fascinating to watch. Working with everyone from David Cronenberg to David Michod, his latest feature is with the Safdie Brothers. As Connie in Good Time, Pattinson plays a ne’er do well who must go to great lengths to free his brother from prison after a botched bank robbery. And after his turn in The Lost City Of Z, we might soon hear, “And the Oscar goes too…”.
Good Time hits theaters on August 11th, 2017.
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 racing against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing both 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.
