The new trailer for Joshua Weinstein’s Drivers Wanted features the diverse voices of New York City’s cabbies.
The film follows Eric, a new immigrant from China with a fresh start in America. With dreams of his own business, and a wife and two young sons to support, he turns to a simple job: driving a taxicab. But the easy route proves to be a Herculean struggle for Eric, who can neither speak the language of his customers nor navigate the city’s 6,174 miles of streets.
From the cabbies:
“I love the traffic.”
“You gotta look ahead and think ahead.”
“You have to know how the city works. Every day is a different day.”
I say the same thing about riding a bike around the city. Gotta love New York.
