Unfortunately (this is the Sandy who wrote the blog post), I think any movie that requires reading the book to understand the plot has failed as a movie. The bare outlines of the plot are there and make sense, but there’;s a lot hinted at that probably got left on the editing room floor. What’;s left isn’;t enough to make the subplots make sense.
M. Rigmaiden,I wasn';t trying to single you out. You seem like a nice lady. My point was that it';s a very historically inaccurate concept that disrespects decent slaves who happened to live in the house. That';s not something we should be promoting.
