Now that you know what it's about, let me explain my earlier statement. I call this an example of a rigged contest (in this case, the Academy awards), because considering the other nominees for best picture that year (Born on the Fourth of July, Field of Dreams, My Left Foot and Dead Poets Society), this was the most undeserving winner for best picture ever awarded. Even more so than Forrest Gump. The acting is all right, but I've seen better from Freeman than this gross stereotype, and Tandy was only awarded the Oscar simply because she was old and she had never won it before (other cases like this have happened with such actors as Henry Fonda in 1981 and Paul Newman in 1986). This is probably the first film that I know of that is already outdated only five or six years after it was first released.
Even though some of you didn't think Forrest Gump deserved the best picture award, at least that film will endure longer as a well-liked film than Driving Miss Daisy.
