Driving Miss Daisy Reviews
I did enjoy and is worth the watch! sweet drama comedy.
All it wants to do is be cute and makes you squeel and it succeeds.
However, I feel little can be said for the latter half of its framing, in which many scenes felt out of place and quite possibly redundant. Not much can be said either for the mediocre acting from supporter Dan Aykroyd, who was also undeservedly nominated for an Oscar for his role.
But, as I'll say time and time again, sentimentality and heartfelt nature in a movie will make up for many flaws, and this movie hits that note with perfection.
An old Jewish woman and her African-American chauffeur in the American South have a relationship that grows and improves over the years.
This film is simply wonderful. The intimacy of the story is not burdened in a clumsy way with big themes, they are understated but never absent: an entire society is concentrated in the life of a few characters, but somehow we realise it only after the end of the movie, because we are captivated by this wonderful friendship, which is not unilateral, it involves three people who love each other in very different ways. Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman are simply impeccable and Dan Aykroyd may have achieved the best performance of his career with this film. If you wish to know what acting really means, watch this film.
