Drama written and directed by Jeff Nichols. The Bikeriders (2023) follows the rise of a fictional 1960s Midwestern motorcycle club through the lives of its members. Kathy (Jodie Comer), a strong-willed member of the Vandals who’s married to a wild, reckless bikerider named Benny (Austin Butler), recounts the Vandals evolution over the course of a decade, beginning as a local club of outsiders united by good times, rumbling bikes, and respect for their strong, steady leader Johnny (Tom Hardy). As life in the Vandals gets more dangerous, and the club threatens to become a more sinister gang, Kathy, Benny, and Johnny are forced to make choices about their loyalty to the club and to each other.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Johnny: [to Benny] I’ve been thinking, I can’t run this club forever. I built this from nothing. This is our family. You and me, kid.
Johnny: Hey, you know, just think it over, you know?
Kathy: From the beginning?
Danny: Yes, please!
Kathy: That was the golden age of bike riders. I never felt so out of place in all my life. That’s when I saw him for the first time. He took my breath away.
Benny: I’m Benny.
Kathy: Five weeks later, I married him.
Kathy: I thought I could change him, you know? Not to be different, but to be, I don’t know, like he’s wild!
Henry: Hey! I told you take that jacket off.
Benny: You’d have to kill me to get this jacket off.
Brucie: What about the bar?
Johnny: Burn it down.
Kathy: The club got real big, real fast. They started running drugs, gambling, prostitution.
Benny: Is that what this club is now?
Kathy: I want you to quit riding!
Benny: Don’t ask that.
Johnny: Benny, I need you.
Kathy: [referring to Benny] You can’t have him.
Johnny: If he wants to ride a bike, he’ll ride a bike.
