"Few recent films have demanded to be seen in a cinema as much as this Japanese heartbreaker..."
★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
Winning the Oscar, BAFTA, and Golden Globe for International Feature, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s expansive Haruki Murakami adaptation is a film of engrossing pleasures. In detailing the effects of the past and the present, of memory and imagination on the creation of art, Drive My Car contains multitudes.
