The Score

Sat 09 July / Pálás 1 / 21:00

2021 / United Kingdom / 100 min / Crime, Romance

From the producers of Yesterday, The Score boldly combines real-time heist-thriller suspense with offbeat romance and a killer soundtrack; starring and featuring the music of Johnny Flynn (Emma, Beast), alongside Naomi Ackie (I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Small Axe) and Will Poulter (Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3, Dopesick).

“Smyth’s very point is that ordinary folk have the right to strive for poetry […] With this promising ditty as his debut feature, the filmmaker introduces himself as a voice to be heard.” — The New York Times

Two small time crooks, Mike (Flynn) and Troy (Poulter), are on a mission. The ‘score’ that they both expect will utterly transform their circumstances. At a roadside café, as they wait for a rendezvous handover, Troy falls in love with the waitress, Gloria (Ackie), and begins to question his life choices… while the threat of real danger is driving to meet them.
