Cold Sassy Tree? Yeah, right....
18 August 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Don't ever read the book Cold Sassy Tree and then watch the movie, because it will leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. The movie is about as far off from the book as you can possibly get. This movie simply took one aspect of the book and made an entire movie about it, without really capturing the spirit of the classic novel. The characters are different, many details from the book were left out. My advice: read the book, skip the movie.
