driving miss daisy

In her Oscar-winning performance, Jessica Tandy subverts the old biddy stereotype as a proud old Southern woman forced to abandon the wheel after she plows her car into a neighbour’s yard. The movie, which also won an Oscar for best picture in 1990, explores a 25-year friendship between Miss Daisy and her African-American chauffeur. In this moving portrait of aging, Tandy shows her astonishing range as she ages from a feisty 70-year-old to an increasingly fragile and senile old woman.[us, 1989]
