Driving Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy is 20 years old, which means I was around 12 when it was released. It's kind of hard to believe I hadn't ever seen it, especially since it's on tv constantly. But the fact that it won an Oscar for Best Picture made me want to wait and watch it with no commercials. So last week I finally sat down with my library rental and gave it a try. I loved it! What a sweet story. I was already a fan of Jessica Tandy because of Fried Green Tomatoes which is easily on my top ten favorite movies of all time list. And I don't know a soul who doesn't love Morgan Freeman, so it already had a good cast going for it, but the story easily drew me in and left me feeling just a little sad, but very content and with a warmed heart. If you haven't ever seen this absolute American classic, give it a try on a lazy afternoon or evening and enjoy.
