Perfect End to a Long Weekend
Oh my. First let me just say, I am shocked and appaled. I have a very hard time understanding that people really believed the things that happened in that movie. Believing that people who are a different color have different diseases? Really? And if you believe that - then please tell me why it's okay for them to fix your food, raise and love your babies, and clean your house. And then - did any of those women think for themselves? Seriously. Anyway, I mean I know that it happened, but it was never, ever reality in my world. It just baffles me.
Second - loved it! I absolutely loved it. This is a movie worth buying and watching over and over and over again. The story is magical, the actors are fabulous. I really started to love and care about these characters. I'm sure the fact that I read the book first didn't hurt any.
I will say that I often want a continuance - even after finishing the book I wanted to know if Aibileen was okay. What happened to her?
And the clothes were incredible - lots of inspiration there.
