As a member 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 couple’s way to 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Melodramatic and overstuffed, Racer and the Jailbird mainly serves as proof that Matthias Schoenaerts and Adele Exarchopoulos deserve to reunite in a better movie.
