“All you need is one killer track.”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “BABY DRIVER is a crime-based action film in which the lead character (Ansel Elgort), named Baby because of his young-looking face, is a talented, young getaway driver for different bank robbers. He relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway.
One day, he gets in trouble when a bank robbery goes wrong, putting him on the run from various parties. The doomed heist threatens his life, love, and freedom after he’s coerced into working for a mob boss.
The story is partly inspired by the “Blue Song” music video director Edgar Wright directed for the band Mint Royale in 2003.”
