Not only the blacks, the whites are get stereotyped and cartoonized too.
Skeeter Phelan blames Margaret Mitchell for typecasting Afro-American women as “Mammy” figures, but then she herself exists in a movie stocked full with Mammy characters from start to end.
Maybe it’s really an important part of American history to be ‘retold’, and not necessarily untrue in any sense, but it just doesn’t go anywhere beyond goody-two-shoes clichés. Good preach, not so good as a story.
My Rating: 4/10
