I am a middle aged white female and must say that I do think this movie would be of more interest to the female population but as a love story, I think it was wonderful. If this came out on DVD or were televised on cable without commercials, I would gladly watch it again.
Read a book published between and I've never read writing quite like this, moving in and out of mythology and metaphor, in and out of vernacular dialect which made me realize how quickly Book Riot Read Harder Challenge I've never read writing quite like this, moving in and out of mythology and metaphor, in and out of vernacular dialect which made me realize how quickly I read based on sight words -- change the spelling of parts of speech, and I read much more carefully!
Unbeknownst to me, this book was the source of one of my favorite quotes: Love is lak de sea. It's uh movin' thing, but still and all, it takes its shape from de shore it meets, and it's different with every shore.
But she had been whipped like a cur dog, and run off down a back road after things.
It was all according to the way you see things. Some people could look at a mud-puddle and see an ocean with ships. But Nanny belonged to that other kind that loved to deal in scraps.
She hated the old woman who had twisted her so in the name of love. She had found a jewel down inside herself and she had wanted to walk where people could see her and gleam it around.
But she had been set in the market-place to sell.

She knew that God tore down the old world every evening and built a new one by sun-up. It was wonderful to see it take form with the sun and emerge from the gray dust of its making.
