The Best Driver in the County 15 min
The ‘Best Driver in the County’ is a short film based on Jack Richie’s 1940’s short story of the same title. While tending his garden one morning, Joe’s simple tranquil world is randomly ambushed at gunpoint by Vivian and Jane, a bi-polar pair of escaped convicts looking to steal his car to enable their getaway. When Joe calmly claims that he lives alone out in the middle of nowhere without a car, Vivian, the menacing leader is immediately suspicious and a delicate game of cat and mouse ignites. Vivian seeks to unveil the secret Joe protects, while Joe carefully learns the backstory of these contrasting criminals and steers a plan by nurturing a conversation with the slower, simpler Jane. Violence is imminent.
