I guess this is women’s movie week at the Crandell, but men will find much to like in Patricia Clarkson‘s star turn playing a book critic abandoned by her husband in this cross cultural frolic with Ben Kingsley, as a Sikh cab driver and sometime driving instructor. From a smart script by Katha Pollitt and Sarah Kernochan.—Peter Biskind
