There’s not much more I can say about Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive that I didn’t already say in my review (or at least nothing I can say without wading into spoilers). It’s easily the best film I’ve seen so far this year. I would be shocked if it didn’t make it into my Top 10 of 2011. You need to see it when it opens.
Film District has released three more character posters for the movie highlighting supporting characters Standard (Oscar Isaac), Blanche (Christina Hendricks), and Nino (Ron Perlman). Check out the posters after the jump. The film also stars Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, and Albert Brooks. Drive opens September 16th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive:
Driver 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, a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard. After a heist intended to pay off Standard’s protection money spins unpredictably out of control, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves, tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals. But when he realizes that the gangsters are after more than the bag of cash in his trunk – that they’re coming straight for Irene and her son – Driver is forced to shift gears and go on offense.
