DRIVE MY CAR had its world premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival in competition for the Palme d’Or and won three awards, including Best Screenplay.

Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story of the same name, DRIVE MY CAR follows Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a stage actor and director, who 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.
