Drive back to see film about parking (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

repel

'drive back' is the definition.
('repel' can be a synonym of 'drive back')

'film about parking' is the wordplay.
'film' becomes 'reel' (reel is a kind of film**).
'about' is an insertion indicator.
'parking' becomes 'p'.
'reel' enclosing 'p' is 'REPEL'.

'to see' is the link.

(Other definitions for repel that I've seen before include "Drive or force back" , "Drive away like leper" , "Nauseate" , "Turn away" , "may turn your stomach" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
