Jungle Cruise Review 'SUMMER ADVENTURE of the year'

Movie Review: Baby Driver

Edgar Wright’s latest is the perfect getaway. Review by Brandon Wolfe Baby (Anson Elgort), the protagonist of Edgar Wright’s delightful new film Baby Driver , looks for all intents and purposes like your standard-issue millennial. The disaffected gaze and the earbuds constantly snaking up either side of his head are the major signposts. Yet that descriptor doesn’t suit Baby too well. He shows no discernible interest in any form of social media, for one, and he takes in his beloved tunes through such outdated means as cassette tapes and first-generation clickwheel iPods, without a whiff of hipster irony. Baby also exhibits a unique personality, hovering somewhere between Ferris Bueller “the world is my stage” exuberance and something like mild autism. He’s a true original, a teen character that defies any of the easy pigeonholing that befalls most of his fictional ilk. And that’s before you factor in that the kid is the best getaway driver in the business. Baby Driver , Wrig
