Reviews:
"LEARNING TO DRIVE has harmless sweetness....It has the intelligence to answer its own questions, about how a New Yorker could be so endlessly selfless." - 08/20/2015 A.V. Club


"Clarkson makes Wendy more than a wronged wife; she has enough self-awareness to consider that she may not be completely blameless in her crumbling marriage....Kingsley complements her by giving Darwan a sweet vulnerability underneath his authoritative exterior." - 08/21/2015 RogerEbert.com


"[D]irector Isabel Coixet's LEARNING TO DRIVE is a richly observed, crosscultural character study that coasts along pleasurably on the strengths of its virtuoso leads." - 08/20/2015 Los Angeles Times


"Among the charms of LEARNING TO DRIVE, a small, observant dual portrait of a New York book critic and her Indian-American driving instructor, are the detailed, lived-in performances of its stars, Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley." - 08/21/2015 New York Times
