Robert Pattinson’s best performance to date in electrifying twisted thriller exclusive to DIFF365@VOX Cinemas powered by Du this month
Dubai, 23 January 2018: DIFF’s independent cinema showcase, DIFF365@VOX Cinemas powered by Du, welcomes the most exciting and latest cinema from around the world for a year-round festival. From 25 January - 7 February, DIFF365 presents ‘Good Time’, a riveting race-against- time thriller directed by Ben and Josh Safdie, starring Robert Pattinson, Barkhad Abdi, Ben Safdie, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Following the mind-bending ‘Heaven Knows What’, celebrated filmmakers Ben and Josh Safdie return to the mean streets of New York with ‘Good Time’, a hypnotic crime thriller that explores with bracing immediacy the tragic sway of family and fate.
After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through New York City's underworld in an increasingly desperate-and dangerous-attempt to get his brother out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Constantine finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance.
Anchored by a career-defining performance from Robert Pattinson, ‘Good Time’ is a psychotic symphony of propulsive intensity crafted by two of the most exciting young directors working today. Josh and Ben Safdie’s transcendent vision is an intoxicating portrait of desperation and destruction that will not be soon forgotten.
‘Good Time’ will screen at DIFF365@VOX Cinemas at the dedicated theatre (Cinema 9) at VOX Cinemas, Mall of the Emirates in Dubai from 25 January - 7 February, 2018.
