I haven’t read the book or seen the movie. Have you seen the movie?
My squish of a liberal friend on Facebook didn’t like the book because it “makes it look like black people needed a white person to help them out.”
It made $75M this weekend on a production budget of $25, so it's already in the black (pun intended).
In the old days this was reality. Liberals can’t deal with reality. It is what it is—a slice of one world in one region of the country. So many stories. So many peoples. So many places. This just one story. Liberals can’t seem to grasp that some things are complicated and has several layers.
Yes I have. The script is beautifully written (so the book must be better) and it is expertly filmed and doesn't drag at any moment. I believe the timing on this movie being released is not good due to the political instability we have right now. I stand on that view. Should it have been released at some other time when we weren't on the edge politically/economically, it would have been much better.
