Told through the eyes of three women in the late 1960’s The Help is a film about African-American house maids and the struggles they go through working for upper class families in Mississippi. Narrated by Aibileen Clark, The Help tells us about social and economic injustices, and how one person can have a voice that helps change the world.

Misused & overlong story but amazing acting.

Okay, so The Help is in many ways like The Descendants (one of its award adversaries of 2011) where it can be easily identified as another Oscar buzz, so to speak, due to the repetitive theme of the dialogue but nevertheless meaningful nature and its colourful and easy-going backgrounds. However, there are quite a number of hit and miss aspects that reside within The Help where certain techniques ... read more

Best Picture Nominees - Worst to Best | 2012 Oscar (7 movies items)

" Yes, The Help is overrated Oscar bait. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't mind a film that's shouting after awards. The King's Speech does that, but I loved it nevertheless. What I don't like about The Help is the squandered potential. Because if this film would just dare to take the racial matter any further, and move away from being so safe and black/white in it's way of showing it. It could, and should have been more "provoking". The acting is excellent, though. Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer"
