Rupert Grint, the young actor who played the role of Harry Potter’s best friend Ron Weasley is finally having a movie of his own, in which he is the protagonist. The movie is called "Driving Lessons" and it looks (and sounds) hilarious, and based on the trailer, Ron…err…I mean Rupert seems a quite talented young actor (not that he wasn’t talented as Ron, but is good to see different layers of his acting skills). Unfortunately, the movie is set for a limited release, which means the movie won’t be played in major movie theaters; however, if I could afford the time to go to the “limited” movie theater in the city I might have a chance. The movie is set to release on October 13th in America. Check it out.
Driving Lessons is a coming-of-age story that centres on Ben (Rupert Grint), the shy son of a vicar. Seventeen-year-old Ben is trying to escape the domineering influence of his heavily religious mother (Laura Linney). His world changes when he meets Evie (Julie Walters), a retired, unsuccessful actress. When Ben finally cracks under the pressure put upon him by his mother, he leaves and goes to work for Evie, travelling to Edinburgh where she teaches him to drive and he comes out of his shell, meeting girls and learning to dance.
