Some of us would like to convince ourselves that filmmakers care more about making something artistically good than about satisfying the cravings of those who pay for movie tickets, but that's not the reality... read more

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.

" I expected this to be fervent and get me all riled up, which it was and did. For some reason, though, I expected it to be darker. Don't get me wrong, it was a pleasant surprise. I was able to enjoy the funnier scenes more, I think. Heartfelt. That's a really good word for this film."
