Based on the short story by Haruki Murakami, Ryusuke Hamaguchi‘s award-winning Drive My Car is a beautiful and bewitching cinematic experience.

Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a stage actor and director, is happily married to Oto (Reika Kirishima), a television 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 theatre 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.
