DRIVING LESSONS

Category: Edition 2007

Synopsis

Ben is 17 and comes from a strict and traditionalist family. His mother is very religious, whilst his father, a Vicar, lives in a world of his own. Ben’s summer holidays are hardly ever any exciting. Whilst his even-age have fun, he spends his free time at driving lessons with his mother, at an old age pensioners’ home and catechism. One day Ben decides to apply for a job he reads about in the church-newspaper and this changes his life. He is employed by Evie, a retired actress who turns his world upside down.
