Director: Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, Ryûsuke Hamaguchi
2021 / 179min / DCP
Winner of the Oscar for best International feature, Hamaguchi’s intimate, restrained, shatteringly emotional epic, inspired by a Haruki Murakami short story, centers on theater actor-director Yûsuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima) and his complicated relationships with a trio of characters: Oto (Reika Kirishima), his wife, with whom he shares a bond based in sex and storytelling and the fresh memory of a shared tragedy; Takatsuki (Masaki Okada), an actor with a history with Oto; and Misaki (Tôko Miura), a melancholy young woman hired to chauffeur him around in his Saab by the Hiroshima theater company for whom he’s staging Uncle Vanya. “A quiet masterpiece… Drive My Car is a story about grief, love, and work as well as the soul-sustaining, life-shaping power of art.”—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
