Acclaimed by critics and winner of four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Driving Miss Daisy is a heartwarming story of a most unlikely friendship, written by Pulitzer Prize winner Alfred Uhry and directed by Bruce Beresford (Mao’s Last Dancer).

When 72-year-old Daisy Werthan (Jessica Tandy in an Academy Award® winning performance) crashes her car, it’s cause for her son Boolie (Dan Aykroyd, Ghostbusters) to step in and arrange for a chauffeur. Mild-mannered Hoke (Morgan Freeman, The Shawshank Redemption) is the man for the job, having driven for a local judge. But yearning for her independence, resentment gets in the way of their professional relationship as Daisy stubbornly clings to the past.

However, Hoke is a man of gentle means and gentler persuasion and endears himself to ‘Miss’ Daisy, forging a remarkable 25-year friendship, a friendship destined to survive the changing social landscape deep in the American South.
