"Told with gusto à la Goodfellas, this richly evocative look at how a 1960s Midwestern biker club turned into a gang establishes “Elvis” Oscar nominee Austin Butler as a major movie star." - Kyle Smith, Wall Street Journal

"Some films merely offer you a clockwork plot. Others, like Jeff Nichols’ smokin’ cool “The Bikeriders,” whisk you away with a roar of mood and atmosphere." - Tomris Laffly, The Wrap

Inspired by the work of renowned photographer Danny Lyon, Jeff Nichols’ engrossing drama follows the rise and fall of a 1960s rebel motorcycle gang. Beginning as a refuge for outsiders, the gang, led by the levelheaded Johnny (Tom Hardy), takes a violent turn as Johnny loses control and his brooding, unpredictable right-hand man Benny (Austin Butler) becomes distracted. Featuring a star performance by Jodie Comer as straight-talking outsider Kathy, who finds herself both horrified and enamoured with the gang, The Bikeriders is an effortless blend of comedy, violence and romanticism set against a backdrop of sprawling Midwest America.

The screening at 17:45 on 7th November will be presented with additional descriptive subtitles of non-dialogue audio. Visit our Accessible Screenings at LIFF 2023 page for more information and other accessible screenings at the festival.
