Ryan Gosling stars as Driver, who flips cars for a living and occasionally moonlights as a getaway man for jewel thieves and bank robbers, offering them five minutes of his time, after which they’re on their own. Driver, we soon come to realise, is an American riff on Jean-Pierre Melville’s solitary samurai, smiling and serene, his moral compass set to neutral. Then one day he shares a lift with his neighbor Irene and runs clean off the road. Irene has an ex-con, almost-ex-husband called Standard who needs to perform one last job in order to pay off his debts and care for his family. Inevitably the heist goes horribly wrong. Now Driver is on the run, with a bag of loot in the trunk of his car and a pair of gangsters (performed with gusto by Ron Perlman and Albert Brooks) tailgating right behind. (Xan Brooks)
