YOU CAN TURN COAL INTO A DIAMOND
on December 2, 2016
Actor James Woods said, "There is Bette Davis---and then there is everybody else." This is one of her greatest films, for some reason, rarely shown. It's a feminist story--as were many of her films--but it's also a tale about the fight against provincial thinking and despair. Kids who take their educations for granted, should see what people used to go through if they wanted a real education, and what they were up against. It's a story of realized hopes, dreams and ambitions against very intimidating odds and attitudes. Inspirational. From the stage play, and with a fine, ensemble cast, this will become part of your library, and a go to film, when you are down. Buy it!
