Ruth Jamison, Fried Green Tomatoes

3. Ruth Jamison, Fried Green Tomatoes

Although Fannie Flagg was pretty clear while setting up the character of Ruth Jamison, movie conveniently looks it over. Intimate relationship between Ruth played by (Mary-Louise Parker) and Idgie that goes on in the book is completely erased from the movie, and replaced with the highlighted story of Ruth`s suffering and torment over the death of her husband.
