Last January, Rag & Bone released the first trailer for a short film directed by actor Michael Pitt showcasing the label’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Today, we’re premiering the film in its entirety.
Titled The Driver and shot, with the exception of one club scene, in black and white, the 18-minute short stars Michael Pitt as Carmen, a New York driver-for-hire. Carmen’s job for the night is to transport a cigar-smoking British gangster Eddie Killen (Pitt’s Boardwalk Empire co-star Stephen Graham) and his beautiful tri-lingual girlfriend (I Origins‘ Astrid Berges-Frisbey).
