RACER AND THE JAILBIRD is a movie that has it all: love, crime, sex, and action, all wrapped up in a taut and twisty thriller-come-romance from the Belgian director of BULLHEAD and THE DROP (both of which starred Matthias Schoenaerts) and was the country’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film to the Academy Awards.

The Racer is Bénédicte, known as Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos), an outgoing, young racing driver and the daughter of a wealthy construction magnate. The Jailbird is Gigi (Matthias Schoenaerts), a handsome playboy with, it seems, time and money to burn, but there is still much more to him than meets the eye.

It may seem obvious from the onset; they fall in love despite her initial resistance. However, when Bibi finds out what Gigi is up to on one of his weekends away – and when one of those weekends goes disastrously wrong – their relationship hangs in the balance and it is put to the test.
