Drive: On the big screen from today
Ryan Gosling stars in this very cool, calm, yet ultra-violent new film based on the novel by James Sallis.
23 September 2011Drive tells the story of a driver with no name and has been described as the sexiest and most stylish film of the year, an accolade that the film lives up to straight away in its opening scenes.
The driver, played by Ryan Gosling, is a Hollywood stunt driver by day who moonlights as a getaway driver with just one rule - the bad guys get only five minutes in his car. This sounds a bit thrifty, but these five minutes are from the best getaway driver in LA!
Things seem pretty simple for the laid back driver until he meets a girl called Irene, a single mum with a son who has taken a shine to him. They don't know it yet, but their relationship soon becomes a catalyst for a series of life-altering events.
What is really successful about the film is its portrayal of an ultra-LA. The sun is shining, his car is a Chevy Malibu and clashes are ultra-violent. Drive will keep you on the edge of your seat.
