Director Nicolas Winding Refn
Driver (Ryan Gosling) is good at what he does. A stunt driver by day, a getaway driver by night, he's aloof, unflappable and professional, with no other ties to this world. But when Driver falls for next-door neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan; An Education, MIFF 2009) he finds himself reluctantly pulled into a job with her ex-con ex-husband (Oscar Isaac; Balibo, MIFF 2009), a doomed final heist he hopes will free them all.
A neo-noir heist film turned high-octane chase, Drive is Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn's (Bronson, MIFF 2009) exhilarating ode to the hyper-stylised action-exploitation films of the 1970s. Kinetic, violent, dripping with cool and boasting a killer cast that includes Ron Perlman, Christina Hendricks, Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks, Drive is part nihilistic thriller, part guilty pleasure and all utter mayhem. - Melbourne International Film Festival 2011
Running Time 100m
Nicolas Winding Refn was born in Copenhagen and studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He is the director of the Pusher trilogy (96, 04, 05), Bleeder (99), Fear X (03), Bronson (08), Valhalla Rising (09) and Drive (11).
