Racer and the Jailbird is the latest breathlessly stylish and sexy crime epic from Oscar-nominated director Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead, The Drop), set against an exciting backdrop of high-speed auto racing and high-stakes heists. Keeping his identity as a member of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly-executed robberies a deep secret, Gigi (Matthias Schoenaerts, Red Sparrow, The Danish Girl, Far from the Madding Crowd) tends to his front, a luxury automobile import-export business, in his downtime. Sparks fly when he meets glamorous and affluent race car driver Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue Is the Warmest Color), and despite their wildly different backgrounds, the pair fall instantly and tragically in love. While Gigi attempts to break away from his illicit history, two things stand in the couple’s way to a happy life together: an unrelenting mob hungry for another heist, and the cops that are closing in on them. A triumph in on-screen chemistry and atmosphere, highlighted by an electrifying truck hijacking, Racer and the Jailbird is a fiery collision between thrilling ensemble crime saga and intimate fateful tragedy. (Fully subtitled)
