The story's a bit predictable, but Learning to Drive is elevated by typically strong work from stars Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley.

Visually, Learning to Drive is mostly flat -- but then, there are only so many ways you can shoot two people sitting next to each other in a car.
"Learning to Drive" is precisely the sort of adult-themed, intelligent and heartfelt film it wants to be, with Clarkson and Kingsley wonderfully on point.
Learning to Drive is a story of companionship, loneliness, resilience. It's a small, artfully crafted thing, but it resonates in big ways.
Together, [Kingsley and Clarkson] have so much to learn, and the operation of an automobile provides so many opportunities for metaphor.
It's a beautifully acted tale of friendship, and about how sometimes, you just need to move forward - in a car, or otherwise.
"Learning to Drive" would be an entirely inert expedition were it not for Clarkson, who plays against Kingsley's sentinel of propriety with her signature radiance and birdlike gracefulness.
If only Coixet and Kernochan would flirt with danger a little more in their filmmaking, we could have had a more memorable film on our hands.
LEARNING TO DRIVE basically takes the Hollywood blueprint about what a film about new beginnings should be and turns it into a Happy Meal that has been replicated umpteen times over.
Learning to Drive makes me wish we had never met Wendy. Her story is self-indulgent and uninspiring.
Isabel Coixet brings us an insightful, refreshing and mercifully cliché-free look at a woman in her early 60s learning to start over through learning to drive.
With creative writing and adept acting, it's a film that will transport you to a better place in life.
This odd couple has much to learn from each other - and I'm not talking about parallel parking. Their scenes together are well-written and deftly acted. As they should be, with two of Hollywood's most accomplished pros behind the wheel.
Nice slice of life movie. I enjoyed the small glimpse into Indian culture and was impressed, as always, by Patricia Clarkson.
Really nice movie about the friendship between a recently separated woman and her Indian driving instructor. I liked how they showed the issues both face while still being an uplifting film. The arranged marriage part was interesting too.
I really enjoyed this. An interesting movie that was funny at times whilst also engaging, wrapped around the difficulty of learning to drive.
