“Really really enjoyed it. It doesn't have the most original story but it is told in a very intimate and particular way. I bought it, loved al the characters and loved to hate Bryce Dallas Howard.

Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and specially Jessica Chastain gave me a lot of joy! :)” read more

"6/10 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"

“The reconstruction of the atmosphere and of the objects, furnitures, dresses, etc. of the beginning of Sixties is philological and looks perfect. Same for the great actresses, who are all very convincing and deep in their role. But the movie is sometimes rhetorical and some scenes are made more to capture the emotions and the feelings of the watchers, than for their importance. Other small detail: the film is too long.. However its message is still very actual, and "helps" to make people aware about the theme of racism and discrimination.” read more

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 saved it, but in others made it an overrated disappointment. So, on the positive side of things, The Help manages to be a 50% success due to the absolutely outstanding acting from its ensemble cast (particularly Davis and Spencer), but the other 50% suffers from its rather severe flaws.

When observing racism as a theme of cinema, there’s quite a wide range of stories to put together ab” read more

Mike Prates posted a review 2 years, 11 months ago

“The Help belongs among the Oscar-considered films that normally arrive in the fall. The fact that the film is in theaters now during the heat of summer? Consider it a gift from Walt Disney Studios.

The Help is based on the beloved novel by Kathryn Stockett. And while Hollywood’s history of turning the page-to-screen experience into something blissful is spotty at best, director Tate Taylor’s film is sure to meet The Help’s passionate literary legion's expectations - and exceed them.

Emma Stone is Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan. The child of the late 1950s has become an adult in the 1960s. Growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, she has seen her share of racial injustice. The story at the heart of The Help concerns Skeeter’s capturing the life story of the maids who li” read more

"Watched on: 1/31 This movie was good. The performances in it were amazing, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer were deffinitely Oscar worthy. However, it was way too long and kind of got boring. And I really don't like Emma Stone. "

Order I think the chances of a film winning Best P (9 movies items)

"The Academy seems to love nominating films dealing with the issue of prejudice and racism (To Kill a Mockingbird comes to mind) but I don't think it's ever won. Plus, some people loved it, while others thought it was overlong and was trying to appeal to Oscar voters. Don't expect this one to be called when the envolope is unfolded. Chance of winning. 2%"
