“…superb… Art and life blur beautifully in DRIVE MY CAR… A meditation on love, desire, work and grief…three unhurried, wholly immersive hours…”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

A man and a woman inside a Saab

Starts Friday, December 10

Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900. As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins – with the help of his driver – to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie traveling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace. Winner of three prizes at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, including Best Screenplay.

Directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi. Japan. Japanese, Korean, English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, Indonesian, German, Malaysian w/ English subtitles. 2021. 179 minutes.
