Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Winner of the Academy Award for best picture of 1989, this gracefully moving drama, adapted from the hit play by Alfred Uhry, chronicles the 25-year friendship between a stubborn, aging Southern widow (Jessica Tandy) and her loyal chauffeur (Morgan Freeman). At first, the self-sufficient Miss Daisy is reluctant to accept the services of a chauffeur, but Hoke is quiet, wise, and tolerant, and as the years pass the unlikely friends develop a deep mutual respect and admiration. Tandy deservedly won the Oscar for her sassy and sensitive performance, and Freeman earned an Oscar nomination for bringing quiet depth and integrity to his memorable role. Ironically, director Bruce Beresford (Tender Mercies) was not nominated, but the film won Oscars for makeup and for Uhry's screenplay, in addition to a supporting actor nomination for Dan Aykroyd as Daisy's supportive son. Delicate, funny, and bittersweet, Driving Miss Daisy was a surprise hit when released, and marked the crowning achievement of Tandy's great career. --Jeff Shannon

3.0 out of 5 stars DRIVING HOME A REAL AMERICAN CLASSIC March 9 2003
By Nix Pix
Format:DVD
When Warner Home Video released their full frame DVD copy of this movie back in 1997 I was really steamed. The image was cropped, softly focused and absent of fine details and proper color balancing. Now, Warner has gone back to the drawing board and released "Driving Miss Daisy" in its original 1:85:1 aspect ratio. But this still may not be the version for you to run out and buy.
True, the original theatrical release was rather softly focused, but this edition is perhaps too much so in spots to say that it is the result of the director's original intent. Colors are smeared and contrast levels continue to be extremely low in spots. There are also blemishes in the original camera negative that are quite evident, particularly in the scenes that take place in the kitchen. Also, there is quite a bit of digital grit, evident in scenes with a lot of sky and a ton of pixelization that breaks up fine background details. The soft quality of the image is what really hurts the over all visual impact of this transfer. The audio has been remixed to 5.1 but it's a weak mix, sounding very much like a 2.0 surround instead. There are a could of documentaries but nothing definitive that will set the world on fire. BOTTOM LINE: Disappointing transfer for a film that has entered the public consciousness as one of the best movies of all time.

I could never understand a mentality that wouldn't love this movie. Freeman was extraordinary. The story line was very plausible so it was a great watch ( twice ) and I will watch it again.

I had watched this movie years ago. I am a fan of Jessica Tandy, so I enjoyed watching it again. As it is a great movie, I wanted to add it to my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie Jan. 2 2013
By Risé
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A classic about a cantankerous old woman who seems to enjoy being difficult, who ends up with a driver who is so tolerant and gentle with her that a friendship develops ... and it changes her character. Great flick.
