Inspired by true events, Driven is a wickedly comedic look at a bromance gone bad. Set in the opulence of early 1980s California, the story follows the meteoric rise of John DeLorean (Lee Pace), and his iconic DeLorean Motor Company, through his friendship with charming ex-con turned FBI informant, Jim Hoffman (Jason Sudeikis).

Crime, coke, cursing in cautionary car mogul tale.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Driven explores the events that led to the downfall of 1980s automobile mogul John DeLorean (Lee Pace) -- namely, a drug deal that was intended to financially rescue his company (but didn't). For a story that's all about how possession and intent to distribute cocaine destroyed careers, there's just one instance of the drug being used. Unlikable characters snort a few lines, leading to behavior that's obnoxious -- although some teens might see it as wacky fun, including a woman impulsively stripping off her clothes and grabbing another woman's breasts. Drinking, swearing ("f--k," "s--t," "c--k"), and smoking (accurate for the time period) are constant. The film's true value is to show that illegal get-rich-quick schemes can cost you something more valuable than money.
