Baby Driver is an action-packed, car chasing, crime thriller with a touch of romance that is sure to keep you on your toes and guessing until the very end.

Baby, played by Ansel Elgort, is a sweet and incredibly charming young man with a new-found passion for music and walking to its beat. He plays a different soundtrack for each and every getaway he carries out. Despite his concerns for his line of profession, Baby is living the high life. He’s got an adoring adoptive father, a new love interest, Debora (Lily James), and lots of money. However, what is a life of money if it costs you too much?

With a crime boss, known as Doc (Kevin Spacey), who’s determined to keep Baby as his getaway driver at any cost, Baby knows it’s time to get out. He plans to run away with Debora, the girl he met who works at a dinner, and leave his criminal life behind. However, when things turn from bad to worse with Baby in the hot seat, will he be able to escape? Or will Doc have too tight a grip on him and every one Baby loves to let him leave without fatality?

Baby Driver has received excellent marks by critics scoring an 8.2/10 by IMB and a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie is fast paced, constructed with a strong plot, and is overall different enough than other crime thriller movies out there that it doesn’t seem repetitive. The romance scenes and back story help the audience to connect with the characters with strong feelings and the high-speed getaway scenes leave your heart racing and asking for more.

Ansel Elgort does a phenomenal job of portraying his character, Baby. Ansel has also played the lead role in the movie The Fault in our Stars, as well as having roles in the Divergent series and Carrie. Lily James, who plays Debora, has also starred in the live action Cinderella. Other members of the cast include Jamie Foxx who played a role in Annie and in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Eiza Gonzalez, Kevin Spacey, and Jon Hamm who had roles in Minions and Mad Men. With such fantastic actors, it’s no surprise that this movie is quickly becoming a favorite.
