Winner of the Academy Award® for Best Picture and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Driving Miss Daisy has become one of the most iconic American stories of the late twentieth century.

In mid-century Atlanta, an elderly widow named Daisy is determined to maintain her independence. But when she crashes her car and is deemed unfit to drive, her son insists on hiring a chauffeur – a driver named Hoke. Reluctant to accept help from anyone, Daisy and Hoke get off to a rocky start. Over the course of 25 years, the unlikely pair have plenty of time to explore each other's quirks and perks as they share amusing adventures and develop a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all of the societal boundaries placed between them.

Don't miss this beloved story about overcoming prejudices, accepting change, and the transformative power of friendship that has warmed the hearts of millions worldwide.
