A Michigan woman has filed a lawsuit over the film “Drive,” charging that the trailer was misleading and that the movie is anti-Semitic.

The lawsuit filed by Sarah Deming against Film District, the studio that distributed “Drive,” and Emagine Novi, the company that operates the multiplex where she watched the movie, reads in part that “‘Drive’ was a motion picture that substantially contained extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith, and thereby promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith.”

“Drive,” which stars Ryan Gosling, is the story of a Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman and discovers that a contract has been put on his life after a heist gone wrong.

Deming complained in her lawsuit that there is “very little driving in the motion picture.”
