Drive - Movie Review

Drive stars Ryan Gosling as a movie stunt driver, who also moonlights as a getaway driver for anyone that hires him. He gives them a five minute window to do anything they need to and he just drives. Gosling's unnamed character lives down the hall from Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son; a spark of romance is there, but nothing happens as her husband is being released from jail. The driver gets caught up in a crime filled world while trying to protect Irene and her son. It's a compelling story and the acting was amazing. Gosling's driver is man of few words in this film, but he was able to convey all the emotions required. There are some violent scenes, but it doesn't take away from who the characters are. I definitely recommend this film as it is quite different from the flashy action movies that have been out lately.

Drive comes out in theatres today, September 16.
