Drive

(R) ★★★☆☆

This avenging-angel thriller begins well and ends in a muddle. Ryan Gosling plays Driver, a loner stunt/getaway driver. The superb Carey Mulligan plays a waitress who lives down the hall from Driver and whose husband is due out of prison soon. How Driver becomes part of a troubled family unit, and how he becomes the target of mobsters (Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman) form the crisscrossing roads of the narrative.

Concert Review

OneRepublic

The clear night sky was a great backdrop for a relaxing yet energetic poolside concert by alterna-pop group OneRepublic. Lead singer Ryan Tedder bounced around the stage with enormous amounts of energy as he sang and played keyboards during fan favorites “Apologize” and “Good Life,” their newest hit. “We are on a beach in the middle of the desert; it can’t get much better than this,” Tedder told a crowd that was also enjoying the beach atmosphere. Some were wading ankle-deep in the pool, and others were sitting on blankets.
