Finally a movie with a story line. The acting was also wonderful. This movie made me feel like I was right there in Mississippi in the 60's.
"The Help" is an inspring movie based on the best-seeling novel by bKathryn Stockett and the rerlationship between African-ameerican maids and the house owners who are white. Emma Sone has come a long way since "The Rocker.," playing her first dramatic role as a reporter who wrote the book on the maids and their relationship with their bosses. Some parts are funny, but other parts are power and inspiring. A lot of women will go and see the movie. How about a few men. This film will entertain men just as well as women. "The Help" got plenty of help from a large cast.
best movie I've seen in a very long time!
This was a very good movie. It was well rounded. It had happy moments, funny moments, and sad moments. I cried twice. I really want to read the book now!!
This is an excellent film. You have to be a stone not to be moved by how well this film captures the maids' travails in Jackson, Mississippi in 1963. Emma Stone's portrayal of the young caucasian writer who goes against her racist Southern belle friends to show the world their cruel behavior inspires. The acting, script, pacing get a solid "A." Even if you think you don't like "message" films, I bet there's going to be some tears of joy at the end of the film. And one of the maid's payback is going to double you over.:)
Funny and powerful. You will be moved to tears of laughter as well as empathy. Although a few things were changed from the book version, it stays true to the original story in the things that matter.
This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.
Excellent movie, thought provoking
