Japan's Official Selection for Best International Feature Film at the 2022 Academy Awards! Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900. As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins—with the help of his driver—to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, director/co-writer Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie traveling a path of love, loss, acceptance and peace. Winner of three prizes at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, including Best Screenplay. From the director of Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy. (Partially subtitled)
