“Driving Miss Daisy” follows Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, who is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social conventions. Directed by Bruce Beresford, the film stars Jessica Tandy as Daisy Werthan, Morgan Freeman as Hoke Colburn, Dan Aykroyd as Boolie Werthan and Patti LuPone as Florine Werthan.
