Sam Clements talks to writer and director Ryusuke Hamaguchi (濱口 竜介) about his new film Drive My Car (ドライブ・マイ・カー) in cinemas from Friday 19 November.
Based on the short story by Haruki Murakami.
Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a stage actor and director is happily married to Oto (Reika Kirishima), a screenwriter. However, Oto suddenly dies after leaving behind a secret.
Two years later, Kafuku, still unable to fully cope with the loss of his wife, receives an offer to direct a play at a theater festival and drives to Hiroshima with his car. There, he meets Misaki (Toko Miura), a reticent woman assigned to become his chauffeur. As they spend time together, Kafuku confronts the mystery of his wife that quietly haunts him.
