Driving Miss Daisy - 6

This is a rare film about friendship. The story follows Miss Daisy through her later years as she fights letting others serve her. When her son hires a driver she is initially resistant, but as she interacts with him she grows to trust him and to enjoy his company. The film also has some interesting dialogue about prejudice, since he is an African-American living in Atlanta, and she is a Jew. The film ends with both characters in old age, keeping up their friendship. This film was best picture in 1990 and stars Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.
