USA 99m, Colour
Directed: Bruce Beresford; Cast: Morgan Freeman; Jessica Tandy; Dan Aykroyd; Esther Rolle; Patti LuPone

driving-miss-daisyDriving Miss Daisy is a gentle and slow-moving film with excellent character development and virtually no plot. Much of the story takes place as conversations between Daisy, an aged southern white woman of considerable means, and Hoke, her African-American chauffeur. The strength of this movie is in the relationship between these characters, which initially begins as a reluctant acceptance on the part of Daisy. Over time, and as Daisy grows older, she becomes increasingly reliant on Hoke, who continues to be a trustworthy, honest and loyal employee and ultimately her best and only friend (Klaus Ming January 2010).
