Becky and I went to see the new movie The Help last week at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO. The Fandango website at The Help, which is a good site to check for show times, describes the movie as follows:
“A 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black servants behind some of her community’s most prominent families. Skeeter (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college, and she’s eager to launch her career as a writer. In a moment of inspiration, Skeeter decides to focus her attention on the black female servants who work in her community. Her first subject is Aibileen (Viola Davis), the devoted housekeeper who has been employed by Skeeter’s best friend’s family for years.”
The Help is definitely a Chic Flick that is going to have more appeal to women than men. When we saw the film, there was a ratio of two to one women to men, but this is a film that should be seen by everyone. It deals with discrimination in the South during the Civil Rights movement, but how it does it is amazing, by looking at racial injustice from the perspective of black Nannies raising white children.
The characters in this movie are great. Emma Stone was perfect for her role as a writer, who took up the cause of the Nannies, even when they were afraid to speak out. Not only does the film deal with the Nannies and their plight, but shows the challenges white men and women faced for speaking the truth. It’s a great film and a must see. I am betting it will win many awards.
Becky and are are both givig The Help a “Don’t Miss It”. Be sure and put it on your list.
