Quotes

Joyce May: Dearie , you know how you always said you wished we were sisters?
Dearie B.: Mmm-hmm.
Joyce May: Well, we are.
Dearie B.: Uh-huh.
Joyce May: No, we are! Blood sisters. I saw the birth certificate.
Dearie B.: Oh, Joyce May, I know!
Joyce May: How... how do you know?
Dearie B.: Because I wished it!
Joyce May: Dearie, it's not that simple.
Dearie B.: Of course it is. You don't need a piece of paper to tell you what's already in your heart. Even I know that.

Fantastic Movie!!!
12 March 2004 | by (Decatur, Georgia) – See all my reviews

When I first read this short story by J. California Cooper I was blown away. When I heard about the movie I got excited and viewed it whenever possible on BET. It should be joined by other stories that Ms. Cooper has penned since her writing career got started by Alice Walker. Maybe one of her novels can be adapted to the screen or produced as a movie for TV. This is a story that needed to be told and shown in schools, churchs, reunions and public gatherings. Now I want to know when will it be availible to purchase? It has been 5 years and there still is no outlet for distribution. As a member of a book discussion group for 8 years, people ask me when will this movie be released? I have no answer and am not in a position to effect the release of this movie. Who can and will? Please hurry...
