Ah - my first Cafe Society thread. Hey - newbies in the Pit feel compelled to announce this, why shouldn’t I?
Now then. The 1991 movie Fried Green Tomatoes is narrated by a character played by Jessica Tandy, who’s name I’m at a loss for (although I’m sure she was called something.)
At the end of the movie, Jessica Tandy wanders off into a different room, wearing rumpled down socks, ala Idgie, suggesting that they are, in fact, the same character.
We had quite a debate about this in a recent literature class that I took - so, anyone have an opinion? Are Jessica Tandy and Mary Stewart Masterson the same character only 50 years apart, or are they completely different?
Interestingly, while Jessica Tandy narrates as though she was there for all the action, you certainly never see her youthful character.
