The Press Reviews

  • Driving Miss Daisy is a film of great love and patience, telling a story that takes 25 years to unfold, exploring its characters as few films take the time to do. Full Review

  • Freeman and Tandy have their own performer's pride, and that transfers to their characters. Tandy, in particular, is almost astringent in her denial of easy emotion. Full Review

  • There is an exhilarating, singularly theatrical lightness of touch that is often lost when these settings are made manifest in a movie. Full Review

  • Far too cosy to serve as an effective social or political metaphor; better to regard it as a solid ensemble piece. Full Review

  • Bruce Beresford's sensitive direction complements Alfred Uhry's skillful adapation of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Full Review
