Baby Driver (15)
Breezy, breathless and defying expectations, Baby Driver is one of the year’s finest flicks.
Ansel Elgort’s getaway driver Baby blocks out his severe tinnitus by listening to music, which basically gives director Edgar Wright an excuse to shape a stunning soundtrack.
Wright also has a knack for making everyone involved feel like a necessary cog in the machine. While he’s short of old buddies Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, Baby Driver is almost as funny as the trio’s Cornetto trilogy escapades, with a layer of sweetness and light missing from Wright’s previous work.
The action is dialled up to 11 as Elgort spins, smashes and soars across, around, over and through the streets of Atlanta, Georgia.
