An old Jewish woman and her African-American chauffeur in the American South have a relationship that grows and improves over the years.
In the scene where Miss Daisy gives Hoke a writing book as a gift, she mentions to Hoke, that she taught Mayor Hartsfield out of the same book. This is a reference to William Hartsfield (1890-1971) who was a six term mayor of Atlanta from 1937-1961.

Hoke Colburn: I'm tryin' to drive you to the store!
In one of the scenes where Hoke is driving Miss Daisy through her Atlanta neighborhood, if you look out the car window, you will see a 1980's Chrysler/Dodge minivan parked at a home in the background. There were no 80's minivans around in the era of the film.
