A quiet and mysterious stuntman, who doubles as a getaway driver for criminals at night, finds himself in a difficult situation when he begins to develop a relationship with his neighbour Irene and her young son. Irene is the wife of a convicted criminal she has felt trapped with for years, and when he inevitably comes out of prison, becoming the target of a local mob boss, things take a turn that lead to violence and danger
Based on a 2005 novel of the same name by American author James Sallis, “Drive” is a modern masterpiece that, upon release in 2011, fell victim to a terribly misguiding marketing campaign that even led to a highly publicized false advertisement lawsuit. This deep, character-driven and incredibly tense movie was sold as a brainless action flick reminiscing of the “Fast & Furious” franchise, which ended up confusing many when they sat in theatres to watch it.
“Drive” has built a massive cult following over the years, and is now considered by many to be one of the greatest films of the 21st Century. With a world class cast including Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Oscar Isaacs, Christina Hendricks and Ron Perlman, it is an expertly crafted movie (both in front and behind the camera), featuring incredible characters and a deeply intimate story that carries a great deal of emotion.
