      The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks reports other examples of violations of the Lackses’ privacy. For example, someone, presumably at Hopkins, gave Henrietta’s medical records to journalist Michael Gold, who quoted from them in his book A Conspiracy of Cells: One Woman’s Immortal Legacy and the Medical Scandal It Caused.   Whereas the Sullivan Entertainment adaptation starring Megan Follows is a delectable confection that captured the wholesome and imaginative spirit of Montgomery’s books, the first few episodes of this reboot border on poverty porn, with traumatic flashbacks that rely on dirt and dark lighting to elicit emotion.
