Director Isabel Coixet’s (Elegy, Paris, je t’aime) latest film Learning to Drive brings the feel good vibes in its first trailer with Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley (who worked with Coixet in Elegy). Clarkson stars as a writer going through marital issues who decides to finally take driving lessons from Ben Kingsley’s character. Set in Manhattan, the trailer suggests a feel-good story that has genuine heart and funny moments. Here’s the synopsis:
Wendy (Patrician Clarkson), a self-absorbed New York book critic, is shocked to reality by the sudden end of her marriage. Always dependent on her husband for driving, she must now learn to take the wheel on her own. Her instructor Darwan (Ben Kingsley) is a Sikh Indian who watches with alarm as his pupil falls apart at the seams. He himself is contemplating an arranged marriage with a woman he has never met. As these two lives intersect, both will change in unpredictable ways.
Learning to Drive comes out August 21. Check out the trailer below.
