Here is the plot description for “Drive”:

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (“Bronson,” “The Pusher” trilogy, “Valhalla Rising”) throttles into the Hollywood fast lane with the precision-crafted crime caper “Drive”.

Ryan Gosling stars as a Los Angeles wheelman for hire named Driver who stunt drives for movie productions by day and steers getaway vehicles for criminal operations by night. A loner by nature, Driver can’t help falling in love with his beautiful but vulnerable neighbor, Irene (Carey Mulligan): a young mother dragged into a dangerous criminal underworld by the return of her ex-convict husband, Standard (Oscar Isaac).

After a heist operation spins out of control that’s intended to help Standard pay off protection, Driver finds himself driving defense for the girl he loves while being tailgated by a syndicate of deadly serious criminals (Albert Brooks and Ron Perlman). When the gangsters reveal they’re after more than the bag of money in his trunk – they’re coming straight for Irene and her son – Driver is forced to shift gears and go on the offense.

“Drive” was written by Hossein Amini and adapted from a book by James Sallis. The film was produced by Marc Platt, Gigi Pritzker, Michel Litvak, Adam Siegel and John Palermo. Executive producers are David Lancaster, Gary Michael Walters, Bill Lischak and Linda McDonough.

The movie trailer for “Drive” can be watched now below.

to save the one i love...

I would go to any length necessary to save the one I love. If it meant driving as fast as possible, I would speed to get there. If I could fly a plane to rescue to love of my life I would. I would do anything to save my man!!!! Even if it meant taking risks, and hitting trouble along the road….

I would go as far as I could possibly go (to the ends of the galaxy) to save the life of my other half! Even today I went looking for an owner of a business to save his turtle that got free from his tank. I stopped in several other businesses in the same building to get the number to the leasing agent to get the owner to come get his turtle. I just know the thing is gonna be dead when the owner returns to his business on Tuesday…
