Ryan Gosling stars as 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 (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband Standard (Oscar Isaac).
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 (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). 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.

Ryan Gosling is the world’s most handsome blank slate in this so-chic-it-hurts homage to the wave of spacious 1980s crime thrillers that launched the careers of Michael Mann and Walter Hill. Gosling’s impassive, deadly capable Driver – a Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway guy – finds his double life flipped on its head when he falls for the pretty single mother next door (Carey Mulligan). Powered by a best-selling soundtrack of Italo-disco and synth-pop, this is one instance where style incontestably is substance.
