Racer and the Jailbird

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 electrifying backdrop of high-speed racing and high-stakes heists.

Part of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly-executed robberies, Gigi (Matthias Schoenaerts) 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), 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 way of the couple’s chance for 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,
Racer and the Jailbird is a fiery collision between thrilling ensemble crime saga and intimate Shakespearean tragedy.
