Drive My Car

Yûsuke Kafuku, a stage director and actor, is happily married to Oto, who works for television. One day he discovers that his wife is keeping secrets from him, but before he can tackle this, she suddenly dies. Two years later, still struggling with his loss, Kafuku is asked and accepts to direct a play in Hiroshima. For this job, he is assigned a driver: Misaki, a reticent woman. They gradually warm up to each other, though Misaki struggles with her own troubled past, which in turn makes him ponder his late wife's mystery.

Drive my car is the first story in the collection Men without Women by famous Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. Director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi first read it in 2013, and seeing the enclosed space of a car as the perfect place for intimate conversations he decided to adapt it to film. The film has been nominated for four Oscars, including for Best Picture and Best Director, and won the Oscar for Best International Picture.
