      Both Ben Kingsley and Patricia Kingsely are wonderful actors and the teaming of these 2 acting icons gives the viewer an exceptional viewing experience. The film also gives the viewer the opportunity to watch the actors present 2 different cultures that share the same emotions, and life concerns.

      Ben Kingsley is spectacular in this movie. He really should have gotten an Oscar nom for this. It is one of those movies that you feel great having been able to see it. Just a lovely story. I don't want to give anything away because it unfolds so nicely.

      Learning to Drive was another wonderful independent film that I adored. It also had a great message – “You Are Never Too Old to Learn.” I would recommend it to anyone who loves to see an interesting film that actually has a real story. Worth seeing!

      Most people won't have seen this lovely little sleeper starring Ben Kingsley and Patricia Clarkson. In some ways, that may be a good thing, because it actually plays better on a small screen.

      Most would probably call this a chick flick. This is one the guys can watch too. Plot development is pretty good. Wish I could have gotten in blu ray instead of dvd.

      Good movie, and story line of the characters kept me interested. Didn't care for the swearing but what movie doesn't have that now-a-days.
