snow flower and the secret fan
May 31, 2011
im was so delighted to learn that one of my favorite books has been made into a film.
snow flower and the secret fan, a story of two life long friends set in 19th century china.
a time when girls bound their feet for a chance to be married into an established family.
primarily i was interested in the book for that reason alone.
i was doing research on the history of foot binding.
happily i stumbled across this fictional read written by lisa see and completely fell in love with the characters.
from the trailer i already see that i may not be pleased with the film’s adaptation.
however, it will be fun to complain about that in a future blog post.
