Ryan Gosling Stars In ‘Drive’


Movie fans typically love the brooding lonely characters portrayed by the likes of James Dean, Steve McQueen and Robert de Niro in the past. This is what makes newly released action-thriller ‘Drive’ a potential hit to moviegoers with Ryan Gosling in the lead role.

Gosling plays the character called Driver who works as a stunt-driver by day and a getaway driver for thieves at night. The story gets complicated when Driver falls for Irene, the wife of an ex-convict and small-time criminal named Standard. One bad heist leads Driver to discover that gangsters are not just after the money but they are out to kill Irene and her son.

While Driver is skilled behind the steering wheel, the car chase scenes are not the usual explosive and high-speed sequences. Instead, the chase scenes rely more on skills and the element of darkness.

The film is an adaptation of the novel written by James Salles. Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn and Gosling combined a tempered love for blood with the cool demeanor of the lead character.

Gosling may prove to be the star of the moment especially in this film. Yes, he may remind the older audience of James Dean, Steve McQueen and Robert de Niro while the younger audience will see a charismatic character in Driver.
