Is there something about this project that you’ve missed? Except the fact that Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Drive will be premiered on Thursday night, May 19 at this years Cannes Film Festival, we now have one extended preview clip from this film to share with you!
As you see, it’s the moment when Driver meets Irene, so for all Gosling’s and Mulligan’s fans out there – a little message – sit down and enjoy this scene…
In a meanwhile, let me remind you that Drive is actually 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 stars: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks and Ron Perlman.
And, for all of you who have missed it, here’s the official synopsis part once again: “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. 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…”
