Good Time

Directed by Ben & Josh Safdie

NT PREMIERE

After a botched bank robbery lands his vulnerable younger brother in prison, small-time hustler Constantine (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.

Good Time recalls the grit and urgency of ‘70s New Hollywood films such as Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Dog Day Afternoon. The new unpredictable thriller from white-hot indie directors the Safdie brothers.

Ignore the deceptively convivial title: This is the kind of thrill that sticks.
