[re Driving Miss Daisy (1989)] I was very lucky because I had a director, Bruce Beresford, who had directed several plays turned into movies. He said: Let me see your draft. Then he said: You've retyped your play. He told me: You don't need to talk as much in the movies. You don't need to say, "I'll go get the car." Just show it. He said: Instead of dialogue, just give me a description of the way you remember things looked. Some of it was the way the sunlight came through blinds, or Reader's Digests stacked up on the radiator, or doing the silver polish with an old toothbrush - things I remember. I would say: Just tell the truth. And don't say it so many times. Show less «
