QUICK TAKE:
Action/Drama: A young man hopes for a new life with a waitress he's just met, all while serving as the getaway driver for a criminal mastermind and those executing his heists.
PLOT:
Baby (ANSEL ELGORT) is a young man whose parents were killed in an auto accident when he was a child. That left him with a bad case of tinnitus which he offsets by always listening to music. That habit also helps with his driving skills, something he puts to good use while working off a debt to criminal kingpin Doc (KEVIN SPACEY) as the getaway driver for a variety of heists the latter orchestrates.

Doc never uses the same crime team combination twice, and thus Baby ends up working with the likes of lovers Buddy (JON HAMM) and Darling (ELIZA GONZALEZ) who seem to enjoy his company, as well as Bats (JAMIE FOXX) and Griff (JON BERNTHAL) who don't.

When he's not working as the getaway driver or helping care for his older and deaf foster dad, Joe (CJ JONES), Baby likes to hang out in the diner where his mom once worked, and it's there that he meets Debora (LILY JAMES), a new waitress who catches his eye and vice-versa. As a budding romance develops between the two, Baby believes he has just one last job to do for Doc and the two can then get away from their current lives. But when Doc comes calling again, Baby fully realizes that Debora's well-being could be in jeopardy whether he accepts the job or not.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
