The Help: Movie Review

 

Dirctor: Tate Taylor

 

Writer: Tate Taylor (screenplay), Kathryn Stockett(novel)

 

Cast: Emma StoneViola DavisOctavia Spencer

 

Introduction: Slavery was abolished, but did it really change the mindsets?

 

Premise: A young woman decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids’ point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.

 

Plot: Skeeter  is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends’ lives — and a Mississippi town — upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen , Skeeter’s best friend’s housekeeper, is the first to open up — to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter’s life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories — and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly — and unwillingly — caught up in the changing times.
