Entering UK cinemas on the 10th of June Learning to Drive is riding high on a very positive festival run over the last year and a half.

Written by Sarah Kernochan and directed by Isabel Coixet this look and love, loss and driving lessons stars Sir Ben Kingsley, Paticia Clarkson and The Newsroom’s Grace Gummer. Yesterday we published our talk with leading man Sir Ben Kingsley, today we have our interview with the wonderful Patricia Clarkson.

Our very own Cassam Looch got to sit down with Patricia to discuss her role in the movie and what it was like driving through the busy streets of New York City!

Wendy (Patrician Clarkson), a self-absorbed New York book critic, is shocked to reality by the sudden end of her marriage. Always dependent on her husband for driving, she must now learn to take the wheel on her own. Her instructor Darwan (Ben Kingsley) is a Sikh Indian who watches with alarm as his pupil falls apart at the seams. He himself is contemplating an arranged marriage with a woman he has never met. As these two lives intersect, both will change in unpredictable ways
