      When Miss Daisy, an aging Jewish woman, almost has an accident trying to get out of her driveway, her son decides that she has become too old to drive. Despite her protests, he hires her a chauffeur, a good-natured African American man named Hoke. Hoke is warned about Miss Daisy’s independent character, so he is prepared to be patient.

      And patience he needs! At first, Miss Daisy refuses to go anywhere, making him sit in the


      kitchen all day long. When he wants to do something else to help him pass the time, like planting flowers, she forbids him to.

      Then Miss Daisy needs groceries, but instead of letting Hoke drive her to the store, she decides to walk. Hoke tries to protest, telling her that it’s his job to drive her, but in vain.

      He then follows Miss Daisy in the car. Seeing how ridiculous she must look, walking along with ...


      • a car following her, Miss Daisy gives up and gets into the car.

        Hoke wins his first victory. Their relationship continues to develop in the same funny way.

        Miss Daisy does not want to be friendly, but cannot help liking Hoke’s mild personality. He drives her for many years; they age together and become even closer after the death of Miss Daisy’s housekeeper.

        In the end, she calls Hoke her best friend, and he agrees. I

        enjoyed the movie.

        It is not a laugh-out-loud comedy, but it is funny and touching. The two leading actors, Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, are very good for their parts.

        I could understand how Miss Daisy does not want to be dependent on someone, but, on the other hand, I couldn’t help feeling for Hoke, who just wanted to do his job. I wanted the two of them to become friends, and was very glad when they did.
