The iconic, world famous car that featured in the Back to the Future movies was created by John DeLorean. This infamous figure finally gets a film made of his fascinating exploits, as we follow the wealthy engineer and designer looking for funding for his new car of the future. DeLorean (Lee Pace) befriends Jim Hoffman (Jason Sudeikis), a fast talking petty criminal enterpriser who moves into his neighbourhood and who, unbeknown to him, is a secret FBI informer (who themselves are very interested in DeLorean’s exploits). This movie is mostly true, but that hasn’t stopped the DeLorean estate from criticising the film. Regardless, Driven is a very entertaining watch, with a fantastic ensemble including Judy Greer, Corey Stoll, Michael Cudlitz, Erin Moriarty and Justin Bartha.
