It is a huge problem Entry #1 of 6 Movie: Fried Green Tomatoes The movie Fried Green Tomatoes came out into theatres in 1991. The story is about two girls in the 1920s. Idgie Threadgood befriends her dead brother’s love, Ruth. When Ruth marries a man named Frank, Idgie helps Ruth get out of the relationship when she finds out that Frank is abusive. The scene I want to focus in on is a scene when Frank gets upset with Ruth and says that she is lying to him and keeping secrets from him. She has done nothing but be at home all day. He is convinced that she is in the wrong and punches her in the face, giving her a black eye and throws her down the steps.
