Summary
Acclaimed by critics and winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Driving Miss Daisy is a heart-warming story of a most unlikely friendship, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Alfred Uhry and directed by Bruce Beresford (Mao's Last Dancer). When 72 year-old Daisy Werthan (Jessica Tandy in an Academy Award winning performance) crashes her car, its cause for her son Boolie (Dan Aykroyd, Ghostbusters) to step in and arrange for a chauffeur. Mild-mannered Hoke (Morgan Freeman, The Shawshank Redemption) is the man for the job, having driven for a local judge. But yearning for her independence, resentment gets in the way of their professional relationship as Daisy stubbornly clings to the past. However, Hoke is a man of gentle means and gentler persuasion and endears himself to Miss Daisy, forging a remarkable 25 year friendship, a friendship destined to survive the changing social landscape deep in the American South
