If you have not seen the movie yet, and you want to, stop reading now.
Not that I'm going to totally give it away, but I just need to talk about it a little, you know?
I thought the movie did a pretty good job staying true to the book, but they glossed over the black Madonna too much. That was an integral part of the book and it was just a teeny part of the movie.
Also....the open jar. They did not explain the open jar! We named our book group in Virginia The Open Jar Book Group. It was that important! For God's sake, elaborate on the open jar!
Other than that, it was fabulous. The actress that played May was out of this world. Alecia Keys was wonderful as June. And you know how I feel about Queen Latifah. August wasn't her "sexiest" role, but she played it well. Of course there's the freakishly talented Dakota Fanning. What can you say about that little phenom?
Well, better run.
All this doing nothing today has made me sleepy.
