This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Yule May sends Skeeter a letter from jail telling her that she can't work on the book because she stole a ring from Hilly that she never wore and was caught. We don't know how she gets caught. Aibileen tells Skeeter that Yule May had asked Hilly for a loan to send her boys to college. Yule May asks Hilly for the loan. Hilly refuses, and then we see Yule May find a ring behind the couch when she is cleaning. She pockets the ring and is later taken off the bus and arrested because she tried to pawn the ring.
   Skeeter and her family go to Stuart's house for dinner. His father keeps bringing up Stuart's ex girlfriend. After dinner Skeeter discusses it with him and he breaks up with her. They later reconcile. This doesn't happen.
   The book shows that Hilly Holbrook is rude to the help. This is barely shown.
   In the book Aibileen is accused of stealing silverware. The silverware had been put away by a little boy in his own diaper. Apparently he has developed such a habit. In the film, Aibileen even mentions the fact of the baby putting things away in his diapers, but in the end we never find out what really happens to the silverware.
   The deadline to get the book to Mrs. Stein is December 21st The deadline to get the book to Mrs. Stein is December 17th
