Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan, Drive generated a lot of buzz at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and won him the best director awards. Like the book, the movie is about a Hollywood stunt performer (played by Gosling) who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. Drive might just be my most anticipated film of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Synopsis: Drive is the story of a Hollywood stunt driver by day, a loner by nature who moonlights as a top-notch getaway driver-for-hire in the criminal underworld. He finds himself a target for some of LA’s most dangerous men after agreeing to aid the husband of his beautiful neighbor, Irene. When the job goes dangerously awry, the only way he can keep Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best – drive.
