Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley in Learning to Drive

Wendy (Clarkson) is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for another woman; Darwan (Kingsley) is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many lifelong New Yorkers: she’s never learned to drive. When Wendy hires Darwan to teach her, her unraveling life and his calm restraint seem like an awkward fit. But as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, and she coaches him on how to impress a woman, their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.

Directed by Isabel Coixet and winner of AARP’s 15th Annual Movies for Grownups Award for “Buddy Picture of the Year,” the movie is directed by Isabel Coixet, written by Sarah Kernochan and co-edited by the great Thelma Schoonmaker (Raging Bull).
