You think something being an impossibility makes you think about it even more?
I don't know. Like... kissin'.
That ain't impossible. When I was 15, I made a 7UP cake for this boy. After that, he kissed me all the time.
What'd it feel like?
Like I was gonna burst.
Miss May, I know you get real sad sometimes. My daddy never feels. He never felt anything. I had rather be like you.

I surprisingly enjoyed the movie more than I thought and would give it a solid 7. It was well scripted, the filming was fantastic, and the acting was good - it was a very pleasant movie. I read the book, so I knew what the plot was about, so no surprises there (although I wish it included one detail that was in the book about the shooting). There was nothing truly spectacular or exciting to give it an 8 (but nothing truly spectacular happens in the book either, so the movie couldn't really change that), but nothing terrible/poor script/poor acting, which you usually find a bit of in a 6 or 6.5 stars. I saw it in the theater and it was the perfect "girls night out" movie. Also good for mother/daughter. Otherwise, wouldn't pay $10 to see it. It would be a great rental - see once and return.
