Known simply as the Driver, Ryan Gosling works as a stunt driver in Hollywood, while making money on the side driving getaway cars.  He falls in love with his beautiful neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan), a young mother who is dragged into the underworld activities over her husband, ex-con Standard (Oscar Isaac).

When a job goes terribly wrong, the Driver has to do what he does best to save Irene and her young son: Drive. Nicolas Winding Refn’s breakthrough movie won him the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival and received an Oscar nomination for Best Sound Editing. This visual gem made many of 2011’s “Best of” lists. So be sure to catch the screening of this modern classic at VERA Zienema!
