The Bikeriders


Film rated as: CFF-15


116 mins


Taking inspiration from Danny Lyon’s 1968 photo collection ‘The Bikeriders’, Jeff Nichols’ latest invites us to 1960’s Chicago, where the Vandals – a motorcycle club whose membership includes leader Johnny (Tom Hardy), Benny (Elvis’ Austin Butler), Cal (Boyd Holbrook), and Zipco (Michael Shannon) – evolves from being a place for local outsiders into something decidedly more sinister. One such outsider is Kathy (Jodie Comer, adopting a thick upper midwestern accent), who gives us an insider’s perspective of the gang’s rise and fall. Come for the stacked cast, stay for the beautiful visuals and ambitious story.
