I purchased this movie on Prime Video for a very affordable price and had a great viewing experience (good quality, quick, easy, hassle-free).
This was my first time seeing this although I had heard amazing things about this film for awhile (I’m only 30 years old). I’m a huge fan of Morgan Freeman and love all his work and probably could listen to him read the dictionary or phone books if they still existed.
I’m from the South, so I’ve known people of the older generation who are like Miss Daisy. It was interesting to see how her character could be contradictory at times (says she isn’t prejudice but at times it seems that she is). It was touching to see how her character evolved throughout the film, and I loved the dynamic between Miss Daisy and Hoke. Hoke was so patient, kind, persistent, honest, and loyal, and I found him so endearing. This film made me love Morgan Freeman even more. When Miss Daisy told Hoke that he was her best friend, my heart just melted. I liked how important issues, such as racism, which we unfortunately are still battling today, were brought up, but it was done in a subtle, effective manner that didn’t take away from the story of these two individuals who bond an unlikely friendship. I highly recommend this film! I love the classics, and this has become one of my favorites.
