Driving Miss Daisy Scene 11

Scene 11

Scene 11

  • Hoke drives Miss Daisy to the cemetery, where she tends her husband's grave.
  • While she's planting flowers at the grave, Hoke tells her it's the third time that month they've visited the grave.
  • She gives him some potted azaleas to put on her friend's husband's grave.
  • But Hoke can't find it, because he can't read.
  • That's crazy. He's always looking at the paper.
  • He admits he's just looking at the pictures.
  • She gives him a little reading lesson, and once he's hooked on phonics, he sets off to find the grave.
  • He leaves the flowers on the right grave and returns to Miss Daisy to carry all her stuff back to the car.
