At the Movies on Day 72

Yeah, I know. It's the most popular book in America right now. Everyone's talking about it. Including my grandma. I'm ashamed to admit that haven't read it yet. My sister and I took her to see the film version. And I cried. And I cried. For the whole movie. As someone who has researched the 1960s, the film was especially moving. It is so poignant and extremely well done. I can't wait to read the book. Hopefully I have time in the next week or so before my free time runs out.


  1. As you know, every story has two sides and I thought you should read this: http://www.abwh.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2:open-statement-the-help&catid=1:latest-news

    These are also fascinating: http://therumpus.net/2011/08/the-solace-of-preparing-fried-foods-and-other-quaint-remembrances-from-1960s-mississippi-thoughts-on-the-help/

  2. Thanks for the links! It was still a good movie, for what it's worth.
