This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Skeeter confesses to Aibileen that she has sent her resume, and has made phone calls to Miss Stein at Harper and Row. Aibileen then tells Skeeter that her son had wanted to be a writer and had an idea for a book about what it was like for a black man to work for a white man. He had the idea after reading a story called The Invisible Man. Skeeter comes up with the idea for a book about what it is like for the Black maids to work for white families.
   After Hilly returns Skeeter's satchel, she and her circle start to distance themselves from Skeeter. This doesn't happen.
   Skeeter confronts her Mother about Constantine's leaving when they are alone together. She asks her Dad the next day, and he claims to know nothing. Skeeter asks while at a family dinner. Everyone says that Constantine left.
   Minny meet Johnny in the house. Celia had not told him that she had hired a maid. He had figured it out because of the improvement in cooking. He asks Minny not to let Celia know that he knows about Minny. He wants her to look after Celia. As Minny is walking up to the house with groceries, Johnny drives up behind her. She is frightened, but he tells her that Celia already told him she was working there. He had already figured it out because of the improvement in the food.
   A naked man tries to break into Cecelia's house. Minnie tries to scare him off with a broom. He hits Minnie, and makes Ludendorff gestures. Cecelia hits him with a poker. He runs away. This does not happen at all.
