A film about language, sexuality, trust, and infidelity adapted by auteur Ryûsuke Hamaguchi from a short story by Haruki Murakami. DRIVE MY CAR is a head-on collision between an emerging filmmaker fascinated by the interior lives of women, and a famous author who…is not. Hamaguchi specializes in revelations of the heart, and Drive My Car—a beautiful melding of two distinct authorial sensibilities—consistently steers clear of the familiar in its characters’ journeys towards self-understanding. But these two wildly disparate storytellers aren’t the only people vying for control of the wheel in this beguiling gem, as a third major player is introduced — legendary playwright Anton Chekhov.

Drive My Car has been named Film of the Year by both the New York and Los Angeles critics associations, won Best Screenplay at Cannes, Best Foreign Film by the Golden Globes and is on the shortlist for Oscar nominations in multiple categories.
