This award winning comedy-drama is a warm-hearted, humorous and an affecting study of the unlikely twenty-five year friendship between an aging, crotchety white Southern lady, and a proud, uneducated, soft-spoken black man. This much-loved story explores themes of race, prejudice, friendship, and aging in a way that makes it movingly clear that they have both come to realize that they have more in common than they ever believed possible.
