The Help movie opens August 10th and I’m looking forward to seeing it. From Left to Write book club member and movie critic Sandie told me to bring tissues. That’s a warning for all of you. Though I don’t cry easily in real life, I become emotionally involved with movies and can get quite teary eyed. I usually try not to compare the book to its movie version. Both are a different way to tell a story and cannot exactly copy the other. Seeing the movie version of a book is fun because I get to see it come to life!
Some fun facts about filming the movie. Apparently local chefs were brought in to make sure the foods used in the scenes, from fried chicken to congealed salads, were regionally correct-as well as being correct for the tie period. There’s a lot of food in the story. We Southerners like to eat!
