Want proof that Rupert Grint isn't just another Weasley? Rent Driving Lessons and discover that Harry Potter's best friend can act (unlike, well ... Harry Potter).
Rupert plays Ben, a quiet kid with bad mom and a meek Dad who goes to work for a retired actress played by Julie Walters (she also plays Rupert's mother, Mrs. Weasley in the Potter films). The actress, Dame Eve, gets him to relax a bit and stop worrying so much about following the rules.
The movie isn't art, but it's a solid 2 1/2-3 star movie that I really liked. Parts of it were predictable, but much of it was really good. If you liked Dear Frankie, I think you'll enjoy this, too.
