The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Book/Movie
Has anyone read/watched The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks? I read the book a few months ago, and I just finished the HBO movie adaptation. I really loved the book; it delved deeply into the many issues surrounding tissue research including patient consent, compensation, etc. The story of the HeLa cells is incredible, and the depictions of the different members of the Lacks family are moving and feel very true to life. The movie starts off a little clunky in my opinion, but it does come together to hit the main emotional moments from the book pretty well. Anyone else have thoughts?
