Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley and Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson star in the feel-good, coming of (middle) age comedy LEARNING TO DRIVE which will release in theaters on August 21 from Broad Green Pictures.
The film about a mismatched pair who help each other overcome life’s road blocks also stars Sarita Choudhury and won the First Runner-up People’s Choice Award at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival where it earned standing ovations at three showings.
The new trailer and poster for LEARNING TO DRIVE have just premiered. Check them out!
Wendy is a fiery Manhattan author whose husband has just left her for a younger woman; Darwan 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.
