I looked at the topic of this film --- a getaway driver -- and predicted a lot of action and no story worth viewing.
I was very wrong.
This is a dynamic film, even in the quietest moments, it holds your full attention.
Nothing is predictable and every twist and turn is compelling. I was waiting for the plot to go off the road, crash and burn, it never did.
This is a romantic film with no graphic sexual content, that is very rare these days.
I want to salute the entire cast for their great performances, but I will settle for this
