I was given the opportunity to see an advanced screening of The Help on Monday night.
Let me start by saying - I have not read the book. I have a hard time finding time to read...
I am going to find the time to read this book.
I love history, so I knew this movie would be right up my alley.
My best friend and I saw a preview for The Help when we went to see another movie, and we knew that we knew that we knew, that we would see this together.
Last night was that night...it was BFF Date Night!!
This story kept my attention the whole way through...I laughed out loud, I (almost) cried (cause I don't cry in public ya know;-) and felt the emotions of the actors...
The roles were great, the selection of actors/characters was a very good fit...
I will see this movie again, and will definitely share this one with my kids.
Well done Disney!!
2 Thumbs Up from me!!
THE HELP Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
Don't forget, I have a giveaway for some cool "The Help" stuff over here...check it out!!
