Small-time crook Connie (Pattinson) is on the run, hiding out with his learning disabled brother Nick (Ben Safdie), whom he loves and is fiercely protective of. When Nick winds up in jail after a botched job, Connie embarks on a desperate mission to bail him out that rapidly descends into a violent thrill-ride. Screened at the BFI London Festival this year, Good Time features a career-peak performance from Pattinson, while the Safdie Brothers (Heaven Knows What) have crafted a transcendent and deeply humane thriller.
