Annotation: The #1 New York Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone, Academy Award-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.

Synopsis: 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. By speaking with Aibileen, Skeeter becomes an object of scorn to the wealthy locals, who view her actions as directly challenging to the established social order. Before long, even more servants are coming forward to tell their stories, and Skeeter discovers that friendship can blossom under the most unlikely of circumstances. Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in a touching tale of race relations based on author Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel of the same name.

Review: -08/10/2011
"THE HELP is Davis's movie, and it's about time."
Review: -08/07/2011
"Where THE HELP succeeds magnificently though is in character portraits by actresses Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer."
Review: -12/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[E]vocatively directed by Southern-bred Tate Taylor....You'll want second helpings of Spencer's sassy comic timing, Davis' humility...and Allison Janney's brilliant brand of crazy."
