"A blood pumping ride" - The Times
Directed by Nicholas Winding Refn and the winner of the Best Director award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, Icon Home Entertainment is pleased to confirm the highly anticipated Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download release of Drive on 30th January 2012.
Without question the coolest movie of 2011, Icon Home Entertainment is pleased to confirm the highly anticipated Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Download release of Drive on30th January 2012.
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson), Drive features one of the hottest young casts ever assembled, starring Academy Award Nominees Ryan Gosling (The Ides of March, Blue Valentine) and Carey Mulligan (An Education, Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps) alongside Golden Globe Winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy), Emmy Nominee Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Oscar Isaac (Body Of Lies) and Academy Award Nominee Albert Brooks (Taxi Driver, Broadcast News).
Since its worldwide premier at the Cannes International Film Festival in May 2011, where Winding Refn claimed the prestigious "Best Director" award, Drive has wowed audiences and critics alike, inciting a flurry of early Oscars-related buzz. Not since Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction has a film been made with such an assured sense of direction and knowing respect to its legacy of modern classic cinema.
Adapted from James Sallis' 2005 novel of the same name, Drive is the story of a Hollywood wheel-man for hire, stunt driving for movie productions by day and steering getaway vehicles for armed heists by night. Though a loner by nature, Driver (Ryan Gosling) can't help falling in love with his beautiful neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan), a vulnerable young mother dragged into a dangerous underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband. After a job spins unpredictably out of control and Driver finds himself as a target for some of LA's most dangerous men, the only way he can keep himself, Irene and her son alive is to do what he does best - Drive!
With a star-making turn from Ryan Gosling in the lead-role and many memorable performances from a phenomenal supporting cast, Drive delivers an original style and substance all of its own. Already being hailed as a modern masterpiece, to say its home entertainment release was highly-anticipated would be an understatement.
