The Overview: Beware of Spoilers…
Baby is a young getaway driver working off a debt to a crime boss. Baby has one more heist to drive and he’s out debt-free. Then Baby meets the girl of his dreams and things get complicated, not because of her but because preparation for the job goes sideways. People die and Baby finds himself on the run from his team and the cops.
Edgar Wright has created a cool, action-packed love story wrapped around bigger than life characters all moving through life to their own internal soundtrack. The more I think about Baby Driver the more I like it. Wright’s story is a fable or yarn that has all of the characters you’d want, played by people you’d cast. Yeah, Baby Driver deserves an “A”.
