A film adaptation of Lisa See‘s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan will hit theaters in July 15th. The official trailer is embedded above–what do you think?
In an essay about the writing the book, See explained: “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan is a story about friendship and what it means to be a woman. Yes, our lives are completely different from those lived by the nu shu writers, but inside we are the same. We want people to hear our thoughts, appreciate our creativity, and feel empathy for our emotions.” (via Shelf Awareness)
