Robert Pattinson, directors Josh & Bennie Safdie and co-writer Ronnie Bronstein discuss Good Time after a sold-out Film Comment Presents sneak preview screening at the Walter Reade Theater. Good Time is the cover story of Film Comment’s July/August issue. Pick it up today!
Film Comment magazine presents a special sneak preview of Good Time, the hypnotic new crime thriller from Josh and Benny Safdie (Heaven Knows What, NYFF52). A major hit at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Good Time stars Robert Pattinson as Constantine Nikas, a petty criminal who embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld over the course of one adrenalized night in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother out of jail following their botched bank robbery. Crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today and anchored by a career-defining performance from Pattinson, Good Time is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten. An A24 release. Q&A with Robert Pattinson, the Safdie Brothers, and co-writer Ronald Bronstein.
