“Good Time”

Robert Pattinson has been transforming his career over the last several years with work in “Cosmopolis,” “Maps to the Stars,” “The Rover” and “The Lost City of Z,” but he finally confirms in “Good Time” what many of us have been expecting for quite awhile: He’s one of the most exciting actors working today.

“Good Time” finds Pattinson teaming up with New York indie darlings Josh and Benny Safdie, whose last feature, “Heaven Knows What,” earned acclaim on the international film circuit. “Good Time” debuted to positive reviews at Cannes, where Pattinson became an instant Best Actor contender. He ended up losing to Joaquin Phoenix, but the fact remains this is the best work of Pattinson’s career thus far.

Pattinson plays Constantine “Connie” Nikas, a small town criminal who embarks on a dangerous journey to get his brother out of jail after a bank robbery goes wrong. The supporting cast includes Benny Safdie, Barkhad Abdi and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

In his A- review out of the Cannes Film Festival, IndieWire chief film critic Eric Kohn raved, “Robert Pattinson is astonishing in the Safdies’ rambunctious heist thriller…He’s abrasive, clumsy and a little bit fearsome. In other words: He’s in a Safdie brothers movie.”

A24 will release “Good Time” in theaters August 11. Watch the new official trailer below.
