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. Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelin is determined to be writer,... 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 ... read more

"Memorable performances and a story that is thoughtfully told. It’s strange how a movie life this, one that is so emotionally swaying, gets critical acclaim; but a movie that’s just as good, like “Life Itself” gets ripped. "

Movie Maniac posted a review 1 year, 2 months ago

“A fantastic ensemble cast gives us a peek at a time when the most disparaged people in American society were, ironically, responsible for its future generations. "The Help" is a drama about the willful ignorance of many and the self-realization of the subjugated few. It is about finding beauty in dark places and darkness in places where we expect light. Sounds heavy (and it is) but it is delivered in such a palatable, heartwarming, and eloquent fashion that the tragedy is trumped by the triumph.

What a beautiful movie this is on all levels. Heart-wrenching at times when it holds up a mirror to our checkered past (and present) with race issues but never cold and dour. Quite the contrary, in fact. The film is heartfelt and genuinely funny to the point that you marvel at how deftly” read more
