Baby Driver is an oddly romantic, musical car chase film that employs the soundtrack to propel the story forward. Written and directed by Edgar Wright, who co-creator of Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy with Simon Pegg, the story focuses on a talented but troubled getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort) who uses the music in his ear as a guide forward. It’s only when Baby finds himself falling in with a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), some bad guys (Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Eiza González) and in love with a waitress (Lily James) that he realizes that he needs to face the music alone.
…Mental meaning slow, was he slow? He had an accident when he was a kid. Still has a hum in the drum and plays music to drown it out and that’s what makes him the best
