Racer And The Jailbird


Monday 9 December 8.30pm Channel 039

The latest breathlessly stylish and sexy crime epic from Oscar-nominated director Michaël R. Roskam, set against an electrifying backdrop of high-speed racing and high-stakes heists. As a member of a notorious Brussels gang renowned for their expertly executed robberies, Gigi tends to his luxury automobile import-export business in his downtime. Sparks fly when he meets glamorous and affluent race car driver Bibi 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 couple’s way to a happy life together - an unrelenting mob hungry for another heist, and the cops who are closing in on them. Racer And The Jailbird is a fiery collision between thrilling ensemble crime saga and intimate Shakespearean tragedy. Starring Matthias Schoenaerts (Red Sparrow) & Adele Exarchopoulos (Blue Is The Warmest Colour). Winner of 6 top Belgian awards.
