Isabel Coixet’s slice-of-life comedy/drama LEARNING TO DRIVE stars Patricia Clarkson as Wendy, a middle-aged book critic who is shattered when her husband Ted (Jake Weber) leaves her. In order to visit her daughter (Grace Gummer), who lives upstate, Wendy begins taking driving lessons from Darwan, (Ben Kingsley) an American citizen originally from India who makes a living as a cabbie and giving driving lessons. The two strike-up a friendship that helps her learn to take control of her life, and him adjust to his new life after an arranged marriage. Learning to Drive screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

“LEARNING TO DRIVE is precisely the sort of adult-themed, intelligent and heartfelt film it wants to be, with Clarkson and Kingsley wonderfully on point.” — Tom Long, Detroit News

“Endearing, mordant, and impeccably acted.” — Peter Keough, Boston Globe
