Robot or human?
Full Review At the Movies Australia It romanticizes, rather than challenges the racial power politics it presents. Full Review Sojourner A warm and tender, human story. It has a dry wit as well as genuine warmth. Best of all it is the perfect showcase for two deserving actors — Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.
Hoke Colburn sits in the front seat with his hands on the steering wheel, but the driver’s seat is behind him. That’s where Miss Daisy sits. She doesn’t want a chauffeur and she won’t give in. Neither will Hoke. For two people so different, they have a lot in common. And the bumpy road they travel ultimately leads to the friendship of a lifetime.
Product Description: Director Bruce Beresford’s affinity for the subtleties of southern life is apparent in this adaptation of Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Since Miss Daisy is becoming a menace behind the wheel, her son, Boolie Dan Aykroyd , ignores her protests and hires Hoke, a black chauffeur.
When the feisty matron decides to resist necessity and walk to the store, the equally stubborn chauffeur follows her in her car. As he says to Boolie, "I used to rassle hogs down to the ground When she expresses annoyance over the demands of the nascent civil rights movement, Hoke points out to the Jewish woman the similarity between the attack on her synagogue and Klan attacks on black churches.
But it is only after many years together that they can finally admit to the depth of the friendship they have shared. The two stars give unforgettable performances, and Beresford’s direction is a model of restraint.
