LEARN­ING TO DRIVE

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Wendy (Pa­tri­cia Clark­son), a New York book critic in the midst of a fail­ing mar­riage, takes driv­ing lessons from Dar­wan, a Sikh In­dian (Ben Kings­ley). A pro­fes­sor in In­dia who was im­pris­oned for his re­li­gious be­liefs, Dar­wan is now a part-time cab driver in the U.S., where he has won po­lit­i­cal asy­lum. As she learns to drive, these two peo­ple from very dif­fer­ent back­grounds bond over their prob­lems and form a friend­ship. Based on a New Yorker es­say by Katha Pol­litt. Rated R. 90 min­utes.
