Learning To Drive (15) Left by her husband (Jake Weber) for the predictable ‘younger model’, distraught Wendy (Clarkson, One Day, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) staggers out into the Manhattan street and hails a cab. The cab driver is Darwan (Kingsley), who offers her courteous sympathy – and then, more usefully, turns out to be able to solve another of her problems. Wendy cannot now visit her daughter in distant Vermont without a hubby behind the wheel, but Darwan moonlights as a driving instructor. Working with a deft screenplay by Sarah Kernochan (What Lies Beneath), director Isabel Coixet gently builds trust and intimacy between these two unlikely friends, avoiding romantic entanglement while also developing subplots involving Darwan’s arranged marriage, America’s treatment of illegal immigrants, and Wendy’s fling with a virtual stranger. Monday and Thursday at 6pm and Tuesday at 2pm.
Love & Friendship (U) With no redeeming virtues other than saucy charm and truly Wildean wit, Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) decamps to her sister-in-law Catherine’s elegant country estate to escape the adverse effects of a scandal and secure a replacement for her recently deceased husband. Quickly starting an affair with Catherine’s much younger brother (Xavier Samuel, Fury), Susan fears that the unexpected arrival of her own wayward daughter (Morfydd Clark, Madame Bovary) will thwart her plans, and so she embarks on dastardly machinations – some involving her equally duplicitous old friend Alicia (Sevigny). Thursday at 8.15pm.
