Snow Flower and the Secret Fan movie trailer

Welcome to a new feature here at Historical Tapestry - From Ink to Screen.

Really it's just a chance for us to post about movies that are coming out soon or we have already seen that are based on historical fiction novels.

First up, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See.

I love Lisa See's books so it was such a thrill to see that a movie is being made of her book. I have to say though, the trailer didn't really do a lot for me, particularly due to the introduction of a modern storyline. I will make an effort to watch it in the hope that it will capture some of the magic of the book.

What do you think of the trailer?


  1. Oh man, I loved this book but had no idea that it was being made into a movie. I'm definitely excited! Hopefully they stay true to the book :)

  2. I absolutely loved the book, and only just yesterday did I hear that they were making a movie of it. That is something I'm definitely looking forward to, but I don't know about the modern storyline either.

    We'll just have to see how it works out.

  3. I haven't read the book, but the movie looks good. I'll be going to it when it comes out.

  4. Really did not like the introduction of the modern storyline. It is such a perfect story as is...why mess with it???
