    Robert Pattinson Stars in the Nonstop Action-Thriller Arriving on Blu-rayTM and DVD on November 21from Lionsgate


    SANTA MONICA, CA (September 14, 2017) – No crime goes unpunished when the hypnotic action-thriller Good Time heads to Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD November 21 from Lionsgate. Racing against the clock to get his brother out of jail, Connie Nikas finds himself trying to make some quick hustles while evading arrest on the colorful streets of New York. Directed by the visionary Safdie Brothers (Heaven Knows What, Lenny Cooke) and starring Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga franchise, The Rover) and Oscar® nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (Best Supporting Actress, The Hateful Eight, 2015), the Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh™ film, which was an official selection at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and received a 6 minute standing ovation, is “pure cinematic pleasure” (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).



    From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes this hypnotic, adrenaline-fueled crime thriller. In a career-defining role, Robert Pattinson stars as Connie Nikas, who embarks on a twisted one-night odyssey through the city’s underworld in a desperate – and dangerous – attempt to get his brother Nick (Benny Safdie) out of jail.



    The Good Time Blu-ray and DVD, which includes a never-before-seen featurette; audio commentary with directors Benny and Josh Safdie, producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, and actors Taliah Lennice Webster and Buddy Duress; and a music video, will be available in bold neon-electric packaging for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

    Excellent film - I watched in a totally empty movie theater opening night...which is a shame. Not sure I would purchase though, it's a very tough film to watch and carries a pretty emotional wallop.

    And at the same time, it's also funny at points. The more bad things that would happen, the more I wanted to laugh because it just made me wonder how unlucky one guy be.

    Saw Good Time last year & agree with everyone who is praising this film. The movie is brilliant, raw, emotional, and powerful. Amazing performances here by all the cast, from the major leads to all of the supporting players.

    Though I am a fan of the first Twilight film (I liked the horror aspect), I've never thought that RP was anything more than an average actor - until recently. However, his role as Connie Nikas in this film was astounding - he completely transformed himself into the character. He definitely deserved an Oscar nomination for this. I also thought his performance in the Australian movie The Rover (2014) was great as well - but that's another thread.

    I have unfortunately run into people like Nikas in real life, i.e. those who continuously take advantage of others (or at least try to) & don't think they're doing anything wrong by doing so; thankfully, most of us are smart enough to avoid getting involved with people like this - obviously, many characters in the film (and IRL) are/were not that discerning.

    From one stand-point it was interesting to see the lengths CN went to try to get his brother out of prison, from another it was obvious it was his fault his brother was in that situation in the first place.

    The Jennifer Jason Leigh character was somewhat sad/pathetic; i.e., she was in her fifties (I'm guessing she was playing someone close to her actual age, though she looks younger), still living at home, without much of a job/career to speak of - and, still hooking up with & being taken advantage of by low-lifes like CN.

    Very sad to see the disabled brother in the class at the end, looking vacant & inactive - until the instructor asked for those who had gotten into an argument with a family member to cross the room - then he did so.

    The film definitely reminded me of urban crime dramas from the '70's re: the frenetic vibe, documentary-style approach to film-making, etc. Specifically, I saw elements from John Cassavetes' '70's films, as well as the early '90's film Bad Lieutenant (which was itself a '70's throw-back to some extent).
