Sundance Selects and IFC Films send word of an edgy new drama coming your way soon called DriverX. The film features Better Call Saul star Patrick Fabian in the title role. There’s been some great buzz for this one lately. It’s been nominated for a number of festival awards and it took home the Special Jury Commendation Narrative Feature Film award from the Durango Film Festival. Winner, winner!
What’s it all about? Check out the trailer, then read on for all the details!
Unemployed husband and father Leonard is an unapologetically old school guy living in a tech-addled world. In order to make ends meet, he plunges headfirst into the brave new world of the gig economy as a driver for DriverX, a popular rideshare service. Roaming the streets of Los Angeles by dark, Leonard finds himself drawn into a sex, alcohol, and Tinder-fueled night world where the next person to get in your car could be anyone: your new best friend, your worst nightmare, or even your next lover. Cuttingly funny and perceptive, DriverX is a timely, all-too-real look at finding your footing in the age of digital disruption.
Henry Barrial wrote and directed DriverX. It stars Patrick Fabian, Tanya Clarke, Desmin Borges, The Office’s Oscar Nunez, Travis Schuldt, and Melissa Fumero.

DriverX makes its way to a theater near you this November 30th.
This looks interesting! It’s a concept that resonates in the era of Uber and Lyft and Tinder. I think I definitely need to seek this one out and give it a chance. What did you think of the trailer? Will you check out DriverX when it comes around? Tell us in the comments!
