Written and directed by Edgar Wright, the mind that helmed such films as “Hot Fuzz” and “Shaun of the Dead,” “Baby Driver” has already been getting some heavy buzz from critics, such as Rolling Stone who dubbed it “Beyond F*<&!#%@ Awesome.” The story features some elements we’ve seen before dealing with get-a-way drivers (see “Drive“), but may just be worth a look.
Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Micah Howard, Lily James, Morgan Brown, Kevin Spacey, C.J. Jones, and more.
Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It’s a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girl friend, Deborah; Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc’s plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby’s skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music?
