This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   When Celia Foote called the Leefolt residence, Aibileen referred Minny to her since she was looking for a help. When Celia Foote called the Leefolt residence and asked if Aibileen had any recommendations for a help, she said "no".
   Hilly sends Cecelia a letter requesting 200 for the ripped dress as a donation for the children of Africa. She also asks her to refrain from volunteering for any events as she was on probation. Cecelia sends her the check. There is no mention of a letter, the check just arrives at Hillys.
   Aibileen tells Skeeter the truth about Constantine. Skeeter learns the truth from her mother.
   Skeeter's mother is sick and gets test done. She eventually discovers that she has cancer. Skeeter's mother is sick from the moment we see her.
   Miss Phelan sends a check to Constantine in Chicago for her birthday. Lulabelle sends it back along with the obituary for Constantine indicating she died three weeks after leaving Jackson. Skeeter's brother goes to Chicago to try and bring Constantine home but he discovers that she has died.

The scene where Celia took a pie to the house didn't happen like that in the book.

Celia didn't bury the miscarried baby. The doctor took it when they left.

Celia and Johnny Foote didn't show up at the restaurant while Skeeter and Stuart were on their date.

im 13, im reading the book and im pretty sure it said that skeeter was a tall skinny girl and was always made fun of, Constantine was in fact the one who made her feel small from the size difference; height not the weight.
