Film highlights – June 2017

Baby DriverBABY DRIVER

Wed 28 June

Most people will recognise him as the heartthrob from 2014’s The Fault in Our Stars, but this year Ansel Elgort plays Baby, a talented getaway driver who relies solely on his personal soundtrack to aid his missions. He finds himself caught up working for big-shot crime boss Doc (Kevin Spacey), but upon meeting waitress Deborah (Lily James), he decides to put his past behind him and run away with her. But before he can get out, he becomes caught up in an intense heist which is damned from the get-go, threatening his life, love and freedom. With its strong Tarantino vibe, this action-comedy will arguably have the best movie soundtrack this summer.

ROUGH NIGHT

Fri 16 June

A hen night goes hilariously wrong in this cynical comedy from Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs (the writers behind Broad City.) Featuring an impressive cast of Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer and Zoë Kravitz, five college best friends get back together for the first time in ten years for a bachelorette weekend in Miami. It seems like an average, slightly awkward hen party until the night takes a dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper.
