Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Ryan Gosling plays a driver for hire whose jobs range from movie stuntman to steering a getaway car. Usually aloof, he makes an uncharacteristically neighborly offer to a woman and her son (Carey Mulligan and Kaden Leos) that need a ride home. This friendly gesture proves the beginning of a dangerous journey for all three of them.
