Baby Driver
Baby Driver“Described as ‘this year’s must-own
  action thrill ride’, Baby Driver follows the
  life of a young orphaned teenager who
  earns money by working for a kingpin
  in organised crime as a getaway driver,
  mistakenly believing that soon he will
  have repaid his debt to a crime lord and
  be allowed to walk away.
..”

FOLLOWING THE DEATH OF HIS PARENTS in an accident, Miles, known as "Baby" (Ansel Elgort; The Fault In Our Stars) went to live with his deaf foster father Joe (C J Jones), whom he now looks after.

During his rebellious years, Baby stole a Mercedes belonging to crime lord Doc (Kevin Spacey: Television's House Of Cards) with a boot-full of drugs; and for his sins, Doc has pulled him in and is capitalising on his brilliant driving skills by using Baby as a getaway driver.

A fantastic film
bursting with energy,
Baby Driver
is one hell of a ride with
wheel-spinning,
heart-thumping thrills
as getaway driver Miles
desperately attempts
to get some
money and to free
himself from the bad
guys...”
Baby drives to the beat of his chosen music, throwing a red Subaru WRX around with ease as he blazes down Atlanta's streets staying one step ahead of the game with Police cars in hot pursuit.

Doc has told Baby that he wants him to do just one more job and then he will be free to go his own way; but there is yet another job ahead when Doc takes on two new teams of Griff (Jon Bernthal: ITV's The Walking Dead), Darling (Eiza Gonzalez: Television's From Dusk To Dawn: The Series), Buddy (Jon Hamm: Television's Mad Men) and Bats (Jamie Foxx: Best Actor, Ray, 2004). And, as the bullets start to fly, innocent people are bound to be hurt.

Baby doesn't like the way things are going and wants to walk away, but Doc won't let him off that easily as he is the best in the game and would be almost impossible to replace. When Baby meets Debora (Lily James: Pride and Prejudice; Zombies) in a diner he falls in love and shares her dream of taking off somewhere: just her, the music and the road.

But Baby has made enemies because of his strong sense of justice and he, Joe and Debora are in danger. Will Baby be able to keep those he loves safe and start a new life as he so desperately wants; or has he upset the wrong people and reached the end of the road…?

A fantastic film bursting with energy, Baby Driver is one hell of a ride with wheel-spinning, heart-thumping thrills as getaway driver Miles desperately attempts to get some money and to free himself from the bad guys. Fasten your seat belts!
