A love story set in the 1920s of a young English couple, Walter and Kitty, who get married for the wrong reasons and relocate to Shanghai, where she falls in love with someone else.
From celebrated director Penny Marshall comes the story of a girl who did everything wrong but got everything right. Make way for Beverly (Drew Barrymore), a smart, beautiful young woman who can't wait to grow up, much to the frustration of her police sergeant father (James Woods). Her life takes its first detour when she gets pregnant at age sixteen. The baby's father, her husband (Steve Zahn), turns out to need more mothering than her newborn son. But through all the trouble, Beverly makes a life that's more than she ever imagined and lives a story that's waiting to be told. Join the ride and watch Beverly kick life where it counts.
In director Penny Marshall's and producer Jim Brooks' first collaboration since the smash comedy "Big," "Riding In Cars With Boys" is the fresh, funny, touching and unbelievably true story of writer Beverly Donofrio (Drew Barrymore, who ages from 15 to 35 in the role) and her often irreverent, always unique personal journey.
Penny Marshall directed this serio-comic story, based on the memoir by Beverly Donofrio, about a young woman who finds her life radically altered by an event from her teen years.
