Friday, November 10 – Thursday, November 16

DIRECTED BY JOSH AND BEN SAFDIE

Josh and Ben Safdie, the acclaimed directors of HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT, return to the streets of New York City with this "instant-classic" (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) hypnotic crime thriller starring Robert Pattinson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ben Safdie and Tahlia Webster. After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine "Connie" Nikas (Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city's underworld in an increasingly desperate—and dangerous—attempt to get his brother Nick (Safdie) out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Connie finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself. In 35mm.

Reviews

“Pure cinematic pleasure about an often funny, sometimes shocking rush into the abyss…”
 – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“There’s simply no other modern American filmmaker capable of generating comedy and deep-seated suspense at the same time. GOOD TIME combines anarchic sensibilities with an exacting style, its loopy plot starting in dark places and heads into willfully absurd directions before doubling back to a wakeup call.”
 – Eric Kohn, Indiewire
