Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a man with a love for music and a knack for driving. He also has a dark back story, an obligation to Doc (Kevin Spacey) and a blossoming romantic life with Debora (Lily James). As a skilled getaway driving his skills are in demand, but some simple mistakes can have dire consequences.
Clever and perfectly styled, Baby Driver is a movie with a lot of soul that is destined to become a cult classic. The deliberate production design will have you shaking your head and tapping your feet as the soundtrack of hits from across eras gives this film it's rhythm... literally. The performances (with Jon Hamm, Eliza González and Jamie Foxx in the supporting cast) are very good, though deliberately cartoonish at times. But the skilled direction bring this film together in what will be dubbed a modern day classic. Enjoyable.
