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. And neither will Hoke.

Alfred Uhry’s moving Pulitzer Prize-winning play became 1989’s Academy Award-winning Best Picture. Driving Miss Daisy tells of genteel but strong-willed Atlanta matron Daisy (Best Actress Oscar winner Jessica Tandy) and her patient but equally determined chauffeur Hoke (Morgan Freeman). 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. From the film’s nine Oscar nominations, it drove off with two more awards: Best Adaptation Screenplay (Uhry) and Makeup.
