This review is from: Driving Miss Daisy [DVD] (DVD)
The film obviously deals primarily with the issue of racial bigotry - specifically in the southern United States. It gives you a great feel for the way things were in that part of the world, from the 40's through to the present day. It is a 'must see' for any thoughtful person. I found it understated, warm and funny. It is a special edition of the DVD and as such has some really interesting extra footage: about the making of the film; about Jessica Tandy (she turned 80 during the filming, which is astonishing) and an interview with the Australian director. The film perhaps lacks the 'wow' factor, but in the same way that you wouldn't go to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower, you wouldn't want to die without having seen this.
