Drive My Car

Yusuke Kafuku, a stage actor and director is happily married to Oto, a screenwriter. However, Oto suddenly dies after leaving behind a secret. Two years later, Kafuku, still unable to fully cope with the loss of his wife, receives an offer to direct a play at a theatre festival and drives to Hiroshima with his car. There, he meets Misaki, a reticent woman assigned to become his chauffeur. As they spend time together, Kafuku confronts the mystery surrounding his wife that quietly haunts him.

Adapted from a Murakami short story, this Cannes prize-winner is a beautiful meditation on grief.

After screening as part of BFI London Film Festival 2021 Drive My Car will be on general release at HOME from Fri 19 Nov
