Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, one of my favorite books EVER (and one of the choices in my 200th post giveaway) is going to be made into a movie!! Ziyi Zhang (known for her role as Sayuri/Chiyo in Memoirs of a Geisha) will be playing Lily, the main character.
I’m thinking about this and remembering the footbinding scenes in the novel. I’m wondering how graphic it will be in the movie. I know when I read it, it was cringe worthy and it made me queasy–I’m sure it’s going to be quite painful to watch.
Anyway it probably won’t come out until late 2010 or sometime in 2011…but still, it’s going to be a movie! *Does happy dance* I’ll be keeping an eye out for the trailer in the coming months.
It may not be as excellent as the book, but I’m still going to be seeing this movie opening night–whenever that is–guaranteed 🙂
