Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
'The Pure and the Damned' by Oneohtrix Point Never ft. Iggy Pop from the official soundtrack of Good Time including unused scenes of a 'what if' ending if Connie and Nick successfully completed the heist.
In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Motivated by an almost ferocious love for his intellectually disabled brother, Nick, and an explosive mix of desperation and thirst for a better life, the abrasive and fledgeling criminal, Connie, involves his sibling in an ill-conceived bank robbery that swears to be a quick and easy job. Instead, things go utterly wrong, and Nick will wind up in Rikers Island after one unanticipated complication, forcing the desperate but determined Connie to embark on a nightmarish, no-holds-barred quest to bail Nick out. Inevitably, over the course of a long and violent night, Connie will go to great lengths to save Nick from a cruel fate, doomed, however, to do more harm than good. Is it all heading somewhere?Written by
Josh Safdie about street-casting first-time actors: "We've always been interested in the quote unquote 'sudden star', like the idea of someone who's a star that you might not have seen before. That they basically have this gravitational pull and they are just emitting their own magnetism. The film that we made prior to Good Time, was almost perversely interested in that. We were casting people playing parts where they were recreating scenes from their real life that happened, sometimes, a few weeks ago. So it's like this weird psychodrama happening there. With Good Time, we wanted to do like a genre film, like a thrilling piece of pulp, but we wanted to pepper in this idea of, this movie, of it's like a thriller, but it's actually thrilling because you don't know where the movie ends and real life begins. Taking that alchemy, the chemistry of taking someone who has no baggage, who's basically playing a version of themselves, opposite someone you know is not playing a version of themselves, is creating a really cool, kind of almost dangerous element where the stakes are higher. It's like, if Rob (Pattinson) messes up as an actor, the failure is actually tenfold because it looks so bad opposite someone who's just being real. It raises the stakes." See more »

This is my first review. Only managed to get through the first half an hour. This looked like it might have been a good film, as it started well, but had to turn it off , as the loud music spoiled it, to the point that it was almost unwatchable, and i was having to strain to hear what the actors were saying. The music LOUD !, INTENSE ! and NON STOP and really put me off the film.
