Final Thoughts

This movie just blew me away.   You know the saying ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’.  It applies to this movie – Don’t judge a movie by its poster or Title!  It drew me in from the beginning.  I couldn’t keep my eyes off the screen.  The actors did an awesome job and of course Ben Kingsley never disappoints.  Do not miss out!  Catch Learning to Drive, out on DVD now!
