Runtime: 1 hour, 40 minutes
A mysterious Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver seems to be trying to escape his shady past – until he falls for his neighbor, whose husband is in prison and who's looking after her child alone.
A film about a getaway driver that has quite a few fun scenes, a decent amount of action, and some serious moments to drive the story forward. I...I was quite wrong in expecting that. This isn't a "fun" film.
I wouldn't want to reveal anything else about the plot, though, because I feel like it's best to go into the film not knowing what to expect, like I did. I knew nothing about the plot of the film and it really surprised me.
