Product Description

Product Description

The #1 New York Times best seller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone, Academy Award(R)-nominated Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, DOUBT, 2008), Octavia Spencer and Bryce Dallas Howard, THE HELP is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project -- one that breaks society's rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humor and hope -- and complete with compelling never-before-seen bonus features -- THE HELP is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

There are male viewers who will enjoy The Help, but Mississippi native Tate Taylor aims his adaptation squarely at the female readers who made Kathryn Stockett's novel a bestseller. If the multi-character narrative revolves around race relations in the Kennedy-era South, the perspective belongs to the women. Veteran maid Aibileen (Doubt's Viola Davis in an Oscar-worthy performance) provides the heartfelt narration that brackets the story. A widow devastated by the death of her son, she takes pride in the 17 children she has helped to raise, but she's hardly fulfilled. That changes when Skeeter (Easy A's Emma Stone) returns home after college. Unlike her peers, Skeeter wants to work, so she gets a job as a newspaper columnist. But she really longs to write about Jackson's domestics, so she meets with Aibileen in secret--after much cajoling and the promise of anonymity. When Aibileen's smart-mouthed friend Minny (breakout star Octavia Spencer) breaches her uptight employer's protocol, Hilly (Bryce Dallas Howard) gives her the boot, and she ends up in the employ of local outcast Celia (Jessica Chastain, hilarious and heartbreaking), who can't catch a break due to her dirt-poor origins. After the murder of Medgar Evers, even more maids, Minny among them, bring their stories to Skeeter, leading to a book that scandalizes the town--in a good way. Not since Steel Magnolias has Hollywood produced a Southern woman's picture more likely to produce buckets of tears (and almost as many laughs). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The Help did not stay in theatres as long as I expected. It was such a good film that I decided to buy the DVD so that I could share it with friends my age, and several young people as well. It is a good consciousness raiser on how otherwise well-meaning people can be unaware of the life stresses of others with whom they interact. It is interesting to compare the book and the film: because they are different media, there are some variations worth noting. I recommend it to any viewer who cares about building understanding and empathy that lead to positive action.

This is very poignant film, and one that has a serious subject; but is very well done and has some very moments in the film. It is a film (nowhere related in subject) that I would rate on par for performance and a very good film with "Shawshank Redemption". Anyone who appreciates the characteristics of our human nature, such determination, courage, humour and love of others, will appreciate this film. It is certainly a film that you can watch intermittently over and over again.

This is one of those movies if you read the book you will still love the movie. Ron Howards daughter is fantastic in this movie - talented like her father. My wife remembers travelling to Florida on vacation as young teenager seeing the racism that exisited in the sixties with segregated schools and washrooms for coloureds and whites. Truly a movie everyone should see to understand our history not all that long ago.

I saw his on TV some years ago, and loved it. Then it was on again a month or more ago, and again it was wonderful. So I decided to get the disc in order that I could have a good laugh again whenever I liked: at the final expense of the typical white trash women from the southern United States depicted in the story. They used to treat their black women maids as slaves to do their every bidding and to raise their children from daybreak to dusk, all for peanuts: whilst at the same time in many cases treating them as tenth class citizens, and worse than their animals.
It depicted also the nasty beatings those damned Southern White Police Officers visited on the black women who didn't bow to their totally unreasonable demands. It seemed that beating the women with their night sticks (or whatever they're called) gave these vicious policemen the greatest of pleasure: regardless of the pain or broken bones they might cause.
The best part, however, was the special pie the servant lady made for her employer 'lady,' who didn't give her so much as a thank you for her "kindness."

One of the best movies that I have seen lately...

The Help is simply wonderfully made. I could not stop looking at it from the beginning to the end, and it is probably what would also happen if I would have reed the book.

It's a refreshing but emotionaly deep story of the day to day life of black and white womens struggleling in a world and time of no tolerance towards black people. I was touched by the simplicity of the approach of the subjet. The acting of the major roles was really convincing and I did trully enjoied each moment, laughs and cries. It is a strory about self respect, dignity, courage and friendship that did not need special effects to get through the heart.

If you liked To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) or Guess Who's Coming to Diner (1967), this movie will definitively be part of your collection. Well, it is part of mine.

I really enjoyed this movie, and I cried too. We don't realize how some people were treated back then, and even today, we still have cases of abuse and people who take advantage of some helpless child or adult. And many of the black people were so wrongly looked at as slaves, and so many were so kind , even though they had to obey when told to do something. So many were giving good advice to the children whose parents had no time for them.

Great cast and wonderful acting. Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer are superb. Working with a well-written script, the actors do an excellent job in bringing to life on the screen an interesting mix of characters. Using humour, they deliver a message that is timeless. You will applaud, laugh and also get your ire up with some characters that you would want to shake up! Watch the film and do read the book and you will not be disappointed.

This came to me very highly recommended and we were not disappointed one bit! Touch and real story set in southern racist Mississippi, it's terrible what black people had to endure back then, very sad when you think what so called "good Christians" did without any second thought, to think that to this day there are still people that think like that!
