Written by JwelchThe year is supposed to be A slender, attractive young woman wearing a smart hat and a white dress walks away from her broken-down car and down the boardwalk fronting the businesses of a tiny north central Florida town.
She comes upon an old man sitting on a ladder-backed chair on the porch of the general store. He points to his left. He'll help ya out. It was an odd moment in Norton Baskin's life.
Here he was playing a character who was pointing out to an actress, who was playing his late wife, which way to go to meet an actor who was playing himself, Norton Baskin, in a scene that never happened.
There were other odd moments when Baskin, now 84, saw the movie Cross Creek. He knew that his wife, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, wasn't as thin and pretty as actress Mary Steenburgen and that he had not been as tall and handsome as actor Peter Coyote.
Marjorie Harvey is being shamed for not buying her parents a nicer house
He knew how much of it was made up. He knew that Marjorie didn't really leave her first husband, Charles Rawlings, in the north and come to Florida to write alone. The couple had sold their possessions in Rochester, N.
Baskin knew that Marjorie's car never did break down when she first arrived in Island Grove, 21 miles south of Gainesville, that he never met her there or helped her get to the ramshackle farmhouse at Cross Creek she had bought sight unseen. He never did rescue her car, as in the movie, fix it up, spit-shine it and offer it to her as a gift. He doesn't even know how to fix cars.
Baskin also knew that Marjorie's black maids weren't like the one the filmmakers created. There had been a devoted maid named Geechee. And Marjorie had helped Geechee's boyfriend get out of jail. But in real life and unlike in the movie, Geechee was a drunk and when her man left Cross Creek, she went with him. Back and forth. From reality to unreality.
Fiction to fact. He was surprised when he eventually found himself caught up in it and taken with the actress playing the role of his wife because, he says, there was something of Marjorie in the larger-than-life Marjorie he saw on the screen. He gropes for the words: "It was her spirit. He, more than anyone else alive, would know that. Marjorie's first husband Charles is dead, as are many of those she knew at Cross Creek.
Norton is also the only person who really knows about the relationship between Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and her second and last husband, Norton Sanford Baskin. The book, described in the movie as her "memoirs," covers only a limited period of Rawlings' life at the Creek. The book also imparts a limited view of Rawlings' life there; it is a hybrid of autobiographical anecdote, essay and detailed reporting on the animals and plants, and the ways and manners of the many black maids, hired hands and other Florida Crackers that the writer encountered during her dozen years there.All Rights Reserved.
During intermission Marjorie gets a call informing her that Victor had another stroke, so the three head back to Napa Valley.
Unfortunately, Victor dies. Before a meeting a few days later, all the women are talking about how worried they all are for Marjorie. But then Marjorie struts in with a plate of macaroons and a chipper attitude. Saying she was out running errands, which included buying the aforementioned pastries and the new sweater she was wearing, Marjorie seems to be completely unfazed.
Over tea with her sponsor Nora, Christie shares her concerns about Marjorie.
Without shedding a tear the entire time, the new widow continues to be in control of her emotions. Marjorie eventually tells everyone Victor wanted her to spread his ashes at the apple orchard he proposed to her in.
Christie, thinking this would be a great opportunity to get Marjorie to properly grieve, suggests they do it as a group. Once they get to the spot they discover the orchard has since been replaced by a Costco. Laughing about it, Marjorie truly gets a kick out of her bad luck.
Inside the megastore, Christie and Marjorie talk over some concession stand hotdogs. On the ride home everyone is texting each other trying to find out what Christie said to make Marjorie so mad. The episode ends with the women hugging and consoling their grieving friend.
