Constantine (Robert Pattinson) loves and believes in his younger brother Nick (Benny Safdie). One day, the siblings attempt to rob a bank, but during the escape, Nick is caught by the police and detained at Rikers Island. Constantine worries that Nick, who is intellectually disabled, won't survive in jail. A pulse-pounding thriller from brothers Josh and Benny Safdie (Heaven Knows What), Good Time follows Constantine over the next day as he desperately tries to secure bail money. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi and newcomer Taliah Webster co-star.
"Sensationally entertaining. A sustained chase thriller that harks back to the pulpy, scuzzy pleasures of vintage Sidney Lumet and Abel Ferrara. The action is so brisk and kinetic that you may not notice the social insights that the Safdies have so shrewdly tucked into the margins of their story. Pattinson is revelatory." (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times)
