The Nice Guys (2016)
The Nice Guys features as part of our FEEL GOOD FILM FESTIVAL: Friday 8th – Sunday 17th October 2021
Written and directed by Shane Black, The Nice Guys is a fun and quirky, black comedy starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling.
Holland March (Ryan Gosling) is a down-on-his-luck private eye in 1977 Los Angeles. Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) is a hired enforcer who hurts people for a living. Fate turns them into unlikely partners after a young woman named Amelia (Margaret Qualley) mysteriously disappears.
Healy and March soon learn the hard way that some dangerous people are also looking for Amelia. Their investigation takes them to dark places as anyone else who gets involved in the case seems to wind up dead.
“Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling underplay beautifully, both reacting to the most outlandish and macabre events as if they are only to be expected” The Independent ★★★★
“An impressive hit rate of gags and one-liners, with the ambient feelgood factor periodically boosted with party scenes and 70s soundtrack album material” The Guardian ★★★★
