Driving Miss Daisy - Jessica Tandy, Morgan Freeman

Rating: 10 arthritic fingers up (but, with a caveat).

 Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy really bring this gem of a movie to life. As an old fashioned elderly white woman born and raised in the South, Miss Daisy (Jessica Tandy) is fully against the idea of having a chauffeur - enter Morgan Freeman as the wonderful character "Hoke."

Driving Miss Daisy follows these two central characters from the 1940's until the 1970's. The story encompasses some Civil Rights movement issues and handles them very well. Throughout the 30 years, we see Miss Daisy and Hoke become, not just boss and driver, but true friends of the heart.

Caveat: The ending of this wonderful movie might be difficult if your senior loved one is becoming 'memory challenged.'
