Now a major motion picture starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, with Oscar Isaac and Albert Brooks in a Nicolas Winding Refn Film. Screenplay by Hossein Amini. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. The film won the Award for Best Director at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival "Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake. Later still, of course, thered be no doubt. But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment. And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawns late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room..." Thus begins Drive, the story of a man who works as a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night. He drives, thats alluntil hes doublecrossed. Powerful and stylistically brilliant, Drive has been hailed by critics as the "perfect piece of noir fiction" (New York Times Book Review) and an instant classic.
