“The License” is a modern-day ensemble comedy revolving around the lives of two Roman slackers.
Rolando, thirty-something and perpetually unsatisfied, works at his future father-in-law’s driving school, and Sergio is a waiter at the corner café as well as a small-time drug dealer.
Thanks to the unexpected death of the elderly owner, they end up taking control of the driving school during the pivotal week before the final driving test.
Characters of all ages and from all walks of life, future drivers and their unlikely instructors, come together to create a reality that borders on grotesque, yet feels incredibly familiar. It touches on important issues like integration in present-day Italy, and gender roles, while never losing its comic tone.
