Please be aware that this article contains spoilers for Baby Driver.
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver was released in theaters this past Wednesday and it has so far gotten very positive reviews from both fans and critics alike. And if you’ve seen the movie, then you know that the ending of the movie is very much up for debate regarding whether it was reality of not.
Speaking with CinemaBlend, Wright says the fact that it’s “up for interpretation” is a “a good thing.”
“I think the end scene is up for interpretation. And I sort of learned quickly through the test screening process that I should let people interpret it how they want. I think it’s an important thing with movies where you don’t have to state your actual intention because nobody’s response to it is wrong. I think that’s a good thing to do; you don’t want to have anybody say, ‘No, you’re wrong, you read that wrong.’ It’s better if you have two different interpretations.”
The movie has a lot of action and a plenty of somewhat dark moments. Wright goes on to mention the Dolly Parton song that is referenced in the film to help better interpret the ending.
“Do you understand what the rainbow in the last scene means? Remember the teller tells him about the Dolly Parton quote? He says ‘Dolly Parton, I like her.’ And she says, ‘Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain; but there can’t be a rainbow without a little rain.’ He goes through incarceration to get to the rainbow.”
In the end, however, how you see the ending is up to you and that’s probably what Wright wants. Is it real? Is it only in Baby’s head? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
