Robert Pattinson, like his one-time co-star Kristen Stewart, seems to have found himself in the indie movie scene, most recently appearing as a supporting character in James Gray’s The Lost City of Z. His new film Good Time opens at Cannes later this month, and today it released its first preview images of Pattinson himself looking disheveled, desperate, and a little deranged.

The film is about a man who descends into the dark underbelly of his city to free his brother from jail, all in the course of one night. Check out photos of Pattinson and his beard below:

Here’s the crazy-sounding synopsis:

After a botched bank robbery lands his younger brother in prison, Constantine Nikas (Robert Pattinson) embarks on a twisted odyssey through the city’s underworld in an increasingly desperate — and dangerous — attempt to get his brother out of jail. Over the course of one adrenalized night, Constantine finds himself on a mad descent into violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save his brother and himself, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

Good Time is directed by Benny and Josh Safdie (Heaven Knows What), and also stars Jennifer Jason Leigh and Barkhad Abdi. It’ll premiere at Cannes and will hit theaters this year on August 11.
