The 1991 Academy Award nominated film Fried Green Tomatoes is based on a novel written by Fannie Flagg.
If you haven’t seen it, please stop what you are doing right now and watch it or — crazy idea — read the book.
The book’s plot revolved heavily around the love story between two women: Ruth Jamison And Idgie Threadgoode.
Unbelievably, the film instead portrays them as best friends who are very close. VERY CLOSE.
The evidence speaks for itself:
1. Like this time they got super flirty down at the creek.
4. And when they used any excuse to get close to each other.
6. When they walked like a couple…
7. …looked like a couple…
11. That time they had the world’s sexiest food fight.
The director actually meant for this scene to be “symbolic” of them making love.
