Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Josh and Ben Safdie, is set to premiere at Cannes in a coveted 10 pm screening on May 25th, near the end of the festival, which hands out the Palm d’Or on May 28th. Festival organizers usually save the best for last. (The Lost City of Z, starring Robert Pattinson, was in the coveted closing night spot at the New York Film Festival last October, and has been hailed as “a masterpiece.”)
The film is in competition, and so is the soundtrack, which was created by electronic genius OPN and legend, Iggy Pop. Josh Safdie has called the score “a heartbreaking masterpiece!” Rob has history in the soundtrack category, as Howard Shore’s score for Maps to the Stars won in 2014.
