We once discussed one of my favorite books here, The Secret Life of Bees. I just noticed they're making a movie based (loosely) on the book. Dakota Fanning and Queen Latifa are playing Lily and August. Unfortunately, it appears as though they are portraying the older women as younger women. (Queen as August, Alicia Keyes as June, and Sophie Okonedo as May. And, as if that weren't bad enough, Jennifer Hudson is playing Rosaleen.
Not sure I will see the movie with these major changes to the story, but I'm inspired to read/listen to the book again.
