Had to wait a day to review so I could cool down as I was so irritated by Ruth in the story last night that my review would have probably been banned, although that of course is a reflection on her good acting and the writing and direction in the movie. Obviously from the description you know this is a very different type of movie, it may irritate some for various reasons but I thoroughly enjoyed it. If there were more interracial marriages eventually there would be nothing to be racist about! We are not our race nor our skin color, nor Ruth are we our religion-those are only temporary for this lifetime, we are a soul having a human experience! She represents the epitome of racism, hatred, arrogance, judgment, lack of self-awareness, nosiness and bossiness, and just being totally over critical of everything, even down to a deck of playing cards. It's sad that people like that
still exist in this day and age. In fact our world views have deteriorated even worse more recently and we are at a major turning point in history in my opinion. However having said that, it's a fabulous movie well worth watching with lots of life lessons and a great ending-which I must admit I was getting nervous as it was approaching-because I felt it was going to end in a different manner. Highly recommended for a multitude of reasons that I didn't even touch on.
