This is the true story of my friend Shari Sax: http://sharisax.com/DrivingMissShari/
I like very much how Shari played with the original title of the movie ” Driving Miss Daisy” starring Jessica Tandy as Miss Daisy and Morgan Freeman as her driver Hoke Colburn.
The story takes place in Atlanta where I lived for three years from 2006 until 2009, so it is a funny coincidence that Shari used that movie as an inspiration. Driving Miss Daisy won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1989 and is one of my favorite movies. The points of the story are about mutual respect and kindness. Daisy comes to accept Hoke and the fact that she needs him to drive her around. Miss Daisy finds out that Hoke cannot read, so she teaches him how to read.
