Drive Poster, Images and Full Synopsis

Ryan Gosling in Drive

I know you liked our previous reports about Nicolas Winding Refn’s upcoming Drive, so I’m sure you’re going to love this one as well.

In case you’re wondering why – well, the answer is because now, we finally have an official synopsis for this movie, and, on the other hand, we also have plenty of new images that we’re going to share with you today. So, let’s start.

Ryan Gosling and Bryan Cranston in Drive

As you already know, Drive is an adaptation of the James Sallis novel of the same name. Refn directed the whole thing from a screenplay by Hossein Amini and the movie has an awesome cast on board: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks and Ron Perlman.

Drive

Driver (Ryan Gosling) is a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night. Doesn’t matter what job he does, Driver is most comfortable behind the wheel of a car. Shannon (Bryan Cranston) is part mentor, part manager for Driver. Since he knows what a great talent Driver is behind the wheel, he either peddles him to film and television directors in the entertainment business or thieves who need an accomplished getaway driver, taking a cut for his own pockets. Always looking to make a buck, Shannon’s current plan is funding a stock car that Driver can race on the professional circuit.

Carey Mulligan in Drive

Since Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) is the wealthiest guy he knows, even if the sources of his money are questionable, Shannon proposes he be their investor. After seeing Driver in action at the speedway, Bernie Rose insists Nino (Ron Perlman) partners with them as well. Primarily a loner and ambivalent about the deals Shannon makes for him, Driver’s world changes the day he shares an elevator ride at his apartment building with Irene (Carey Mulligan). When he sees her again at the grocery store with her young son, Benicio (Kaden Leos), he is transfixed, and willingly offers help when they are stranded in the parking lot because Irene’s car won’t start.

Soon Driver settles into a routine of driving Irene to her waitress job and watching Benicio, entangled in their lives while her car is fixed. This interlude in Driver’s life abruptly stops when Standard (Oscar Isaac), Irene’s husband, is let out early from prison for good behavior.

Even though nothing has happened between Driver and Irene, Standard is threatened by another man’s presence in his family’s life. Driver backs off, respectful of Irene’s desire to keep her family together, but when he finds Standard bloodied and lying in the garage with a scared Benicio standing next to his father, Driver is embroiled even further in Irene’s life. Then trouble begins…
