It was video conferencing time tonight at my house. That’s an awfully fancy term that just means I gathered around the tv with my oldest girls and we watched a movie. I’d seen Fried Green Tomatoes before, but it was quite awhile back. I’d forgotten quite a bit of it, including the ending, so it was almost like seeing it for the first time. If you like a good story, you’ll like this movie, and if the sound of soft southern accents pleases you, you will love it. Be forewarned: you’ll get hungry about halfway through, LOL!
There are several scenes that show racism for what it is and was: quite ugly. It’s by no means the theme of the movie, but it plays enough of a part to bear mentioning. I would not recommend it for anyone under 13 for this and other reasons, including just a bit of salty language and some violence. Still, it’s a good flick in my opinion, and I enjoyed it. Again.
