Driving Miss Daisy

A Christmas Critique

Daisy Werthan (Angela Lansbury) and her daughter-in-law Florine are both Jewish, but it is only Florine who celebrates the Christmas holiday with relish. Miss Daisy complains about Florine to her chauffeur Hoke Colburn (James Earl Jones) while on her way to her son and Florine’s Christmas party. Miss Daisy brings along coconuts for the ambrosia.
