Baby Driver - Movie Review

Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe of The Harold & Maudecast review the film BABY DRIVER, written and directed by Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD) starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jamie Foxx and Jon Hamm.

Baby (Elgort) is a reluctant yet talented wheel man coerced into driving for crime boss Doc (Spacey) to pay off an old debt. Baby's unique use of music makes him unstoppable behind the wheel but draws suspicion from the crew. When Baby meets the woman of his dreams, Deborah (Lily James), he must decide how much he's willing to risk before it's too late for a new life.

BABY DRIVER is the not your usual bank heist, action film. It's highly stylized and makes clever use of its soundtrack--which is essentially the other lead character in the film. Edgar Wright, who along with collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost gave us the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ and AT WORLD'S END, makes an uncommon but brilliant transition to action genre proving once again, a good film is all about the writing. The story drives this picture along with some great performances. With one fell swoop Elgort graduates from teen drama prince (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, The DIVERGENT SERIES) to Oscar worthy actor. He's fantastic as the questionably quirky, music-dependent orphan who finds his way out of his hard luck circumstances with love.

We highly recommend this film. Go see it in theaters -- it warrants a big screen view. 8.6/10
