Driving Miss Daisy is the gentle, heart-warming tale of friendship between two unlikely souls. When Daisy Werthan (Jessica Tandy, in her Academy Award winning performance) drives her car into her neighbour’s garden, her son Boolie (Dan Aykroyd) decides that her driving days are over. Boolie employs Hole Colburn (Morgan Freeman) as Daisy’s chauffeur, but her resistance to this intrusion into her life causes conflict between the two. As time goes on however, the two develop a close bond and realise that over their 25 year relationship, they have become each other’s best friend. Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play, Driving Miss Daisy would go on to win four Academy Awards in 1990, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.
