Baby Driver (2017) – in cin­e­mas from Fri­day, June 30

Edgar Wright's new­est film cap­tures every­thing you can pos­si­bly love about go­ing to the movies. It's filled with wonderful char­ac­ters, great car chases, enough style for a dozen cool flicks, and yes, a sound­track that is bet­ter than sex.

The cast is note-per­fect, the only down­side is that Jon Bern­thal's role is al­most more of a cameo (con­sid­er­ing the top billing). Ansel El­gort is wonderful as Baby, bring­ing an in­stant lik­a­bil­ity and pu­rity to the char­ac­ter. The sup­port­ing cast is equally great with Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and Eiza Gon­za­lez as the stand­outs. The scenes be­tween all three of them con­tain the most elec­tric­ity and ten­sion.

The story tells about the tal­ented get­away driver Baby (Ansel El­gort) who re­lies on the beat of his per­sonal sound­track to be the best in the game. Af­ter meet­ing the woman (Lily James) of his dreams, he sees a chance to ditch his shady lifestyle and make a clean break. Af­ter be­ing co­erced into work­ing for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), Baby must face the mu­sic as a doomed heist threat­ens his life, love and free­dom.
