DRIVING MISS DAISY (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Driving Miss Daisy
—classic—serves a Bravo! piece of entertainment that perfectly catches long-term relationships between employees and employers as well as between the adult child and aging parent. It’s a ‘definition of life’ film that has the word ‘bittersweet’ written all over its scenes. Great work for Director Bruce Beresford. Well done story coupled with outstanding acting from Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman, and Dan Aykroyd.
