In the film, Driver (Gosling) is a Los Angeles wheelman for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).

The film premiered last May 20, in competition at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival with Midnight in Paris, Tree of Life, Sleeping Beauty and Melancholia. The film also received an record-breaking 15 minute standing ovation by the media and film critics during it's first screening.

Director Nicolas Winding Refn says that he draws inspiration to to Inglorious Basterd's Quentin Tarantino's ultra-violence method of filming. Although 'Drive' shares several characteristics with the similarly-named 1978 Walter Hill film, The Driver, it is actually adapted from the 2005 James Sallis novel of the same name, with a remarkable screenplay by Hossein Amini.

Drive will be in cinemas soon exclusively in Ayala Malls Cinemas.
