Three Good Reasons

  • 1
    Lead actor Michael Fassbender won the prestigious Volpi Cup for his performance when the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
  • 2
    Fassbender reteams with director Steve McQueen (not the one from "Bullitt"), who previously made the highly acclaimed true story "Hunger."
  • 3
    The film deals with the serious matters of abuse and addiction in a truthful and unflinching manner you don't often see on screen.

Bet You Didn't Know

Actors often complain about living out of hotels, but Carey Mulligan is used to it. As a child, her father was a manager for Intercontinental Hotels, and she grew up living in some of the finest hotels in Europe. But that didn't make her a hotel snob. While she was shooting the movie "Drive," she stayed at a downscale $110-a-night Best Western in Hollywood.
