Driving Miss Daisy Reviews
Taut drama, fresh humor, Tandy, Freeman and Ackroyd are perfect as the starchy, driving matriarch, supported by the long suffering chauffeur and her son.
Brilliantly nuanced, they keep each other on their toes.
The ending could have been given more strength, depth and emotional resonance, but sufficient as given.
A powerful play given new life as a movie.

Prácticamente es una verdadera joya.
The movie is sweet, charming and heartwarming. This is the kind of film that granny's go to watch and after it's over their something like "That was nice". Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy were excellent in this movie, as both of them had great chemistry and very entertaining conversations between them.
It dose get kind of dull at times and i do wish the films pasting was a bit better, but that's just me. I say it's worth checking out, because there's plenty of things to like and appreciate in this movie.
In this classic film, Morgan Freeman gives possibly the best performance of his career. His character is witty and charming, and Freeman shines in the role. Next to him is Jessica Tandy, who also gives a remarkable performance. Ultimately, the films strength comes from these two characters. As previously stated, this was a time when African American's were still viewed as lower than white men and women. This film breaks down that boundary, resulting in a heartwarming film that touches the soul.
"Driving Miss Daisy" is a wonderful film from start to finish. Morgan Freeman is fantastic as Mr. Hoke, giving possibly his best performance in a film. The script, story, and characters are wonderful, funny, and charming. This is a film that everyone should watch. It's an important story, full of emotion and humor. One could say it's a masterpiece, and i think you'd be right. It is a classic masterpiece, and it deserved every award it got.
