My screening of this movie consisted entirely of old ladies ... and me. Learning to Drive is directed by Isabel Coixet and stars Patricia Clarkson, Ben Kingsley and Grace Gummer. The film revolves around Wendy (Clarkson), a New York City resident whose husband has just left her. She decides to learn to drive so that she can visit her daughter (Gummer) at college in Vermont. She takes lessons from an Indian man named Darwan (Kingsley), and she experiences a fantastic turn-around with her life. To start, I absolutely love indie "dramedy" movies. Small-scale stories with interesting characters and witty dialog. This cast is also great, with Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley headlining. So, I went into this film expecting it to be a good time and a nice breath of fresh air from the summer movie season of blockbusters and explosions. And while the movie was a cute breath of fresh air, it is nothing more than that.
