Synopsis

"... A RICHLY OBSERVED, CROSSCULTURAL CHARACTER STUDY THAT COASTS ALONG PLEASURABLY ON THE STRENGTHS OF ITS VIRTUOSO LEADS" – MICHAEL RECHTSHAFFEN, LOS ANGELES TIMES

Academy Award® nominee* Patricia Clarkson and Academy Award® winner** Ben Kingsley star in a feel-good, coming-of-(middle)-age comedy about a mismatched pair who help each other overcome life's roadblocks.

Wendy (Clarkson) is a fiery Manhattan book critic whose husband has just left her. Darwan (Kingsley) 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.

*2003: Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Pieces of April; **1982: Best Actor in a Leading Role, Gandhi
