The Story: Becky Foster is caught in middle-age, middle management and in a middling marriage - with no prospects for change on the horizon. When a socially inept and grief- stricken millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works one night, Becky ends up being offered nothing short of a new life. So the question becomes, should she take it?

 

Variety magazine called Becky’s  New Car : “... gently and consistently funny - right up to the point that it's touching, and then even a little bit after that.”
