My dad and I went to "Baby Driver" in the theater. This is a mediocre action film directed by Edgar Wright, starring Kevin Spacey and Ansel Elgort. The first part of the film is better than the 2nd part, and features Baby showing off his incredible driving skills as a get-away driver for some bank robbers. He listens to music constantly and the best parts of the movie show how he matches his music to life. The 2nd part of the film got too much into gun violence and ridiculousness. But, there was some interesting disability content. Baby has tinnitus; his foster father is Deaf. They use ASL to communicate and they enjoy music together-- the Deaf character, Joe, feels the vibrations on speakers. Baby can also be viewed as an Autistic character, although I don't think this was intentional on the part of the film makers. There were a few traits that stood out: He has a couple of deep interests and is narrowly gifted (with driving and music). He barely speaks, and when trying to interact with people he sometimes quotes song lyrics and movies. He wears sunglasses most of the time (perhaps to avoid eye contact?). He also cares deeply about the people he loves, and he is not particularly emotionally expressive.
