Sarah Deming has filed a lawsuit against “Drive” distributors FilmDistrict and her local theatre Emagine Novi for using a “misleading trailer” to get her to see the film according to Click on Detroit.
Seems that Miss Deming expected “Drive” to be more akin to “Fast and Furious” rather than the retro art house drama with minimal actual driving that was the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed project. While she may have object, “Drive” is currently one of the best reviewed films of the year.
Deming also claims that the film features “extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith” and plans to turn her individual lawsuit into a class action suit next week.
FilmDistrict didn’t comment on the story, an Emagine theatres spokesperson called it an extremely frivolous lawsuit.
