“Baby Driver” proves there’s life after “Divergent” and “Mad Men”

The luminous Shailene Woodley was always going to find work after the abortive “Divergent” divergence. A blatant cut-and-paste “Hunger Games” knockoff, it didn’t even come to term.

She’s on HBO’s “Big Little Lies” opposite Oscar winners Reese and Nicole and the great Laura Dern.

But co-star Ansel Elgort? Soft spoken, sweet-faced Ansel? Perfectly cast as a guy named “Baby.”

“Baby Driver” is another getaway driver thriller with Elgort in the title role. Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, Jon Bernthal and Jamie Foxx are the bad guys who need his services. Lily James is the waitress he’d love to “take away from all this.”

It’s an August movie, so low expectations.
