Racer and the Jailbird (2017) starring Matthias Schoenaerts

Adèle Exarchopoulos and Matthias Schoenaerts play ill-starred lovers in this entertaining but shallow romantic crime melodrama. By all means, sit back and enjoy the performances, sex, action and tragedy - but don't expect any deeper exploration of the characters.
