R-pattz gets grimy in new movie Good Time

Cert 15, 102 min­utes, in cin­e­mas 17 Novem­ber

Heat (UK) - - News -

Star­ring: Robert Pat­tin­son, Benny Safdie Di­rec­tors: Josh Safdie, Benny Safdie

THE PLOT Af­ter Con­nie (Pat­tin­son) in­volves his brother Nick (Safdie), who has an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity, in a bank heist that goes awry in its im­me­di­ate af­ter­math, he sets about bust­ing Nick out of his po­lice-guarded hos­pi­tal bed.

WHAT’S RIGHT WITH IT? Cast against type as a low-life New York crim­i­nal, R-pattz de­liv­ers his most tex­tured, eye-catch­ing per­for­mance yet, and the twisty plot of­fers a fair few sur­prises. WHAT’S WRONG WITH IT? Since Con­nie re­acts to ev­ery sit­u­a­tion with such quick-wit­ted in­tel­li­gence, you won­der why he planned such a dumb crime in the first place, or in­volved Nick in it.

VER­DICT Hip US in­die di­rec­tors the Safdie broth­ers de­liver a ca­reer break­through, with one hell of an as­sist from their lead ac­tor. Charles Gant

Crack is whack, eh, R-pattz?

Do­ing a bit of moody brood­ing
