*Post-screening film discussion with Jennifer Gagliardi
Paying homage to the reckless crime dramas of the 80s and 90s, GOOD TIME has been billed by some critics as a modern day Mean Streets or Dog Day Afternoon. This is the first runaway hit for the Safdie brothers, directors of films such as Daddy Long Legs and Heaven Knows What. Robert Pattinson steps into the role of Connie, a man down on his luck trying to rob a bank with his mentally handicapped brother Nick. When their heist goes wrong, Nick goes to jail, and Connie is left to come up with bail money. What ensues is a fast paced, drug ridden look at the underbelly of New York City as Connie searches for ways to come up with $10,000 to save his brother. Selected to compete for the Palme d’Or for 2017, GOOD TIME is a crime drama that goes beyond the viewer’s expectations, constantly offering more than one expects. It is a movie about love, redemption, and the lengths a man would go to to save someone he cares about.
