Driver (Ryan Gosling) is a skilled Hollywood stuntman who moonlights as a getaway driver for criminals. Though he projects an icy exterior, lately he's been warming up to a pretty neighbor named Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her young son, Benicio (Kaden Leos). When Irene's husband gets out of jail, he enlists Driver's help in a million-dollar heist. The job goes horribly wrong, and Driver must risk his life to protect Irene and Benicio from the vengeful masterminds behind the robbery.

I'm not sure whether it's "worth your time" or not... depends on what you're looking for. This is not an uplifting story with a positive message. It's a crime story, and the content is gritty, brutal and unattractive. But as far as the film goes, I thought it was stylish, well-done and thought-provoking. The characters were 3-dimensional and human. I thought about the characters and their journey for days afterward... but some of the violent imagery stuck with me too.October 8th, 2011 · Details
