2011 Films - Best to Worst (121 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 Spenc"
