Caitlin Rodenbeek Rector GERO 200 28 November 2006 Movie Summary Driving Miss Daisy is a compassionate film entailing the growing relationship and bond between a Jewish elderly woman from the South and a calm-mannered chauffer. The short-tempered Miss Daisy had lost her license and almost killed herself due to lack of judgment and stubbornness to give up a freedom. Her concerned son hires a chauffer to ensure his mother’s safety, but Miss Daisy refuses to have anything to do with him at first. The driver, Hoke, eventually caresses his way into befriending Miss Daisy and the two grow a strong bond for one another. I found the movie to be quite gentle and warming to watch. Though the film was filled with humorous moments, there were often times of sadness and reality that brings the viewer back. When the family cook passes away, it sends a message not to disregard everything in life. Miss Daisy’s character was extremely impetuous but was very well balanced by the placid personality her driver took.
