Watch ‘Drive My Car’ online

Every year there are snubs and surprises in the Oscar nominations, and the 2022 awards ceremony is no exception. (Has the Academy forgotten about Passing? And what does Don’t Look Up do in all these categories?) But every once in a while we’re treated to some delightful surprises. This year’s Drive My Car by Ryusuke Hamaguchi, a contender for the best photo, is one of them.

The Japanese drama has been receiving critical acclaim since its premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, where it took home three awards and was nominated for the Palme d’Or, the top prize. But compared to more popular US releases like Dune and West Side Story or Netflix titles like The Power of the Dog, Drive My Car flew relatively under the radar for mainstream American audiences, as it was only shown in select theaters. Still, the dark horse received critical acclaim for its award campaign, winning four Oscar nominations, including Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay (for Hamaguchi and Takamasa Oe), and Best International Feature Film, as Japan’s official selection for the ceremony. It is also the first Japanese film to be nominated for Best Picture.

Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s 2014 short story of the same name, Drive My Car follows Yusuke Kafuku, a widow, actor and director working on a new film in Hiroshima as she struggles with this woman’s death. “By order of the festival’s producers, Yusuke is assigned a driver, a young woman named Misaki, to take him to and from rehearsal every day,” the synopsis reads. “With Misaki’s help, Yusuk begins to face the terrifying mysteries his wife has left behind during their long drives.”
