Drive My Car (MA 15+)

Yusuke Kafuku accepts to direct Uncle Vanja at a theatre festival in Hiroshima as a means to cope with the loss of his wife. There he meets Misaki, an introverted young woman appointed to drive his car.

Secrets from the past and heartfelt confessions are unveiled in this cinematic treat winning Academy Award for Best International Film and Best Screenplay at Cannes.

Yusuke Kafuku, a stage actor and director, still unable, after two years, to cope with the loss of his beloved wife, accepts to direct Uncle Vanja at a theater festival in Hiroshima.

There he meets Misaki, an introverted young woman, appointed to drive his car. In between rides, secrets from the past and heartfelt confessions will be unveiled.

Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a stage actor and director is happily married to Oto (Reika Kirishima), a screenwriter. However, Oto suddenly dies after leaving behind a secret. Two years later, Kafuku, still unable to fully cope with the loss of his wife, receives an offer to direct a play at a theater festival and drives to Hiroshima with his car. There, he meets Misaki (Toko Miura), a reticent woman assigned to become his chauffeur. As they spend time together, Kafuku confronts the mystery of his wife that quietly haunts him.

“Drive My Car is a hell of a ride, the red Saab riding through the landscape like a beating heart, taking viewers along a journey that they won’t soon forget.”
Jason Gorber, Slash Film

“Japanese writer-director Ryusuke Hamaguchi takes a leisurely detour along the lonely highways of love and loss, grieving and healing in his latest Cannes competition contender Drive My Car.”
Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter

“I can’t think of any contemporary directors who have this much care and patience in creating illuminating characters like Hamaguchi.”
Dustin Chang, Screen Anarchy
