Drive is a 2011 action drama film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.
In the film, Ryan Gosling portrays an unnamed Hollywood stunt driver who also serves as a getaway driver for criminals. His life takes a significant turn when he develops a close bond with Irene, his neighbor, and her son, Benicio. When her debt-ridden husband, Standard, is released from prison, the two men take part in what turns out to be a botched million-dollar heist that endangers the lives of everyone involved.
Praised for its stylish direction, Gosling's performance, and a unique mix of action, suspense, and atmospheric storytelling, the film is celebrated for its striking cinematography and a synth-heavy soundtrack.
The film has since garnered a devoted fanbase and achieved a cult following, partly due to its portrayal of Gosling's character as a stoic, mysterious, and pent-up figure.
