Driving Miss Daisy

 (1989)

Driving Miss Daisy Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

An elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta can no longer drive. Her son insists she allow him to hire a driver, which in the 1950s meant a black man. She resists any change in her life but, Hoke, the driver is hired by her son. She refuses to allow him to drive her anywhere at first, but Hoke slowly wins her over with his native good graces. The movie is directly taken from a stage play and does show it. It covers over twenty years of the pair's life together as they slowly build a relationship that transcends their differences.

For more about Driving Miss Daisy and the Driving Miss Daisy Blu-ray release, see Driving Miss Daisy Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Driving Miss Daisy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A lovely period sheen has been cast over Driving Miss Daisy by Australian cinematographer Peter James, a regular collaborator with director Beresford. (Their most recent project was the 2010 film, Mao's Last Dancer.) Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray does not reflect any attempt to brighten or "enhance" the image with boosted contrast, and the blacks are suitably black, which is essential for scenes inside Miss Daisy's home, which James lit from sources outside the windows, so that portions of the frame are often cast in shadow. On a properly calibrated display, there's plenty of detail to be seen in those shadowy areas. Outdoor scenes, and scenes in other locations, are more brightly lit.

The grain structure is natural and undisturbed by filtering or other digital tampering. The grain may seem heavy by comparison to contemporary productions, but it is appropriate to both the source and the period. Bright colors occur in Driving Miss Daisy (the Christmas party at Boulie's home is one obvious example), but for the most part the film's palette is as conservative as its heroine. The most notable exceptions are growing things such as flowers, tomatoes and vines.

The only flaw to report is minor instability in the image that appears to result from "gate weave" or some similar phenomenon causing the entire frame to shift slightly. It's not a serious problem, but viewers whose eyes were educated by the digital age (and therefore are unused to an image created by film running through a projector) may find it disconcerting. Otherwise, the source material is in excellent shape.


Driving Miss Daisy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The film's original stereo track is presented in DTS-HD MA 2.0, and it sounds quite good. Driving Miss Daisy may not be a surround showcase, but it features first-rate sound editing to accompany the expansive period environment in which director Beresford has situated his characters. For example, at Hoke's initial job interview, when he and Boulie walk across the factory floor of the Werthan mill, they have to shout over the sound of dozens of looms operating at full speed, and the din is one of many reminders that Boulie runs a thriving business, when he isn't tending to his mama's concerns. Similar bits of narrative information are layered unobtrusively into the soundtrack, and they come through clearly. So does all the dialogue, in accents that author Uhry has vouched for as authentic. Hans Zimmer's sprightly score sounds as good as it ever has.
