DRIVING MISS DAISY

1989 ****1/2 99 mins.

This 1989 Best Picture winner features great performances and a great idea. The only detraction is the look and feel of the film. I can't exactly describe it, but I know what I mean. Jessica Tandy plays an elderly lady who can no longer drive herself (despite what she believes). Dan Aykroyd plays her son, who hires a driver for her (played by the always fantastic Morgan Freeman). True emotions and laughs abound.
