PVR Pictures to release Ryan Gosling’s Drive in India

Mumbai: Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and adapted from James Sallis’s 2005 novel, will be released by PVR Pictures in India.

The movie is about an unnamed driver (Ryan Gosling) who works at the garage of his friend Shannon (Bryan Cranston) and a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver for criminals at night. Shanon’s scheme involves getting into racing with a local criminal named Bernie Rose (Albert Brooks) but the driver has befriended his neighbor Irene (Carey Mulligan) and agrees to help her husband (Oscar Isaac) get out of trouble with thugs hassling him for money, pulling them both deep into something.

The movie premiered at TIFF 2011 and was also lauded at the Cannes Film Festival 2011.
