Loved it

Like I talked about earlier, I really do not like going to movie theaters.

This last week, I made an exception.

Last year we read The Help for my book group. I read almost the entire thing driving back from one of my husbands triathlons. It was a 4 hour plus drive, so I had the time. I couldn't stop reading it. It just drew me in. So, since the movie just came out, we got our book group together (well, as many that could) and went to a late showing.

Loved it.

Yes, it was different than the book. But what movie isn't?? I mean, excepting those BBC movies that are hours long (Pride and Prejudice, Bleak House, etc....) you are never going to have a movie that goes perfectly with the book. I didn't have that expectation.

I would even pay to go back and see it. In fact, I'm going to read it again. Mostly because I cannot articulate what it is I loved so much about it.

Go see it. Get your husband or your girl friends, or your boy friend and go and see it. Maybe I'll be able to figure out what is just so amazing about it after I've watched it again.
