Getting a best director nod at Cannes is no mean feat. Getting it for directing an American action movie with a lead character named Driver is exceptional. The film is an adaptation of the novel by James Sallis. It’s about a man who works as a Hollywood stunt driver, but who also takes jobs as a wheelman, driving for criminals, whose life is turned upside down when a hit is put out on him after a job goes wrong.

It is directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the Icelandic director who has won praise in recent years for his films Bronson and Valhalla Rising.

Here’s what FilmDistrict have to say about the film...

“Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac). After a heist intended to pay off Standard's protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals. But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk-that they're coming straight for Irene and her son-Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense”

Drive opens on the 23rd of September...
