Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley star in this feel-good, coming of middle- age comedy about a mismatched pair who help each other embrace happiness and overcome life’s obstacles. Wendy is a self-absorbed book critic whose husband has just left her for a younger woman. Darwan is a soft-spoken taxi driver from India on the verge of an arranged marriage. As Wendy sets out to reclaim her independence, she runs into a barrier common to many New Yorkers – she’s never learned to drive. Determined to visit her daughter upstate, she hires Darwan to teach her. The two strike up a friendship and as he shows her how to take control of the wheel, she coaches him on how to adjust to life after marriage. Soon their unlikely friendship awakens them to the joy, humor, and love in starting life anew.​ In his film review CBS Radio’s Bill Bregoli said of the film, “The most delightful culture clash since Best Exotic Marigold Hotel! Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley are a perfect pair. A gem!" [2014, USA, Runtime: 90 minutes, Rated R]

Oscar® winning screen legends Shirley MacLaine and Jessica Lange team up with Demi Moore in this screwball comedy about love, friendship and self-discovery. After her husband's passing, Eva (Shirley MacLaine) is on her own and facing a bleak financial future. With a loving yet distant daughter Crystal (Demi Moore) reminding her of her age every day, she feels her best times are behind her. When she receives a life insurance check mistakenly made out for five million dollars instead of the expected $50,000, Eva and her best friend Maddie (Jessica Lange) decide to take advantage of this financial windfall and head off for an adventure of a lifetime. But their fantasy is short lived when the insurance company realizes their mistake and the duo become fugitives from justice. Can the insurance company catch up with them before they spend all the money? This endearing film shows us the importance of long-term friendships and that it’s never too late to let loose and have fun. [2016, USA, Runtime: 86 minutes, Rated PG-13]

In his review, James McDonald of The Irish Film Critic said, “If you want to see two seasoned Hollywood pros at work, watch Wild Oats. It is both hilarious and winsome”.
