Movie 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.

Editorial reviews

"Where THE HELP succeeds magnificently though is in character portraits by actresses Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer."
Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt (08/07/2011)

"THE HELP is Davis's movie, and it's about time."
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek (08/10/2011)

"The warmly engaging book has been made into an equally affecting movie."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (08/12/2011)

"The movie is richly flavored by the work of a sprawling cast that puts the exceptional Viola Davis and Emma Stone at the film's impassioned center..."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (08/10/2011)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A deeply touching human story filled with humor and heartbreak....The actors are sublime."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (08/18/2011)

3 stars out of 5 -- "Evocatively 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."
Total Film - Jane Crowther (12/01/2011)

The Help (DVD, 2011)

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Help is the best film I have seen this year. This film is about the examples of accepted racism in the early sixties, but it is also about the friendship between women. I like the way director Tate Taylor deals with both subjects equally well.

There is a very beautiful song included in the film. It is entitled "The Living Proof". It is performed by R and B singer Mary J. Blige. This is such a moving song about enduring hard times but still having a sense of dignity about life. The soundtrack also includes classic songs by Chubby Checker and Frankie Valli, but the new Blige song is definitely the highlight in regards to the music.

The performances by Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer are excellent. They are two black maids who both work for white families. They cook, clean and raise other people's children. These maids do their jobs do their jobs with such dignity. I admire these fictional characters. They seem like real people to me. These actresses bring the characters of a novel to life on screen. Emma Stone plays an aspiring writer who documents the experiences of these two women in a book entitled The Help. Bryce Dallas Howard plays a racist white woman. Jessica Chastain plays another white female character with a much softer heart. Sissy Spacek gives the movie a humorous element with her performance. I laughed and cried watching The Help. The Help is an excellent film. A must see.

Get the book or audio book over the movie, more food for thought!

No, I would not recommend this product.
Review For: The Help (Blu-ray/DVD, 2011, 2-Disc Set)

Hello,

I have listened to the unabridged audio book first, which was wonderful in its description of the complicated relationships between mothers and daughters, friends, couples and black and white human beings obscured by the mechanics of society. To me this is not a pretty book, it is an honest to the core of the characters, story telling book. I feel that in comparison the movie depicts the protagonists too pretty and perfect. One of the main characters "Skeeter" , who sets the hole plot in motion, is not all that distinct from her friends in the beginning of the story, In fact she is a close friend all of her life with Hilly, the biggest racist and instigator in the story.

Skeeter has some notions of something being wrong in the big picture, but she becomes a different person only through the experience being stripped of her beloved maid and later creating "the Help" with some black women of her hometown.

To me the movie got it in reverse, Skeeter has that different more sophisticated look and attire from the get go.

I understand that a movie has to set the stage in order to tell a story in an abbreviated and somewhat quicker way, but in this case your loosing out big time if you hurry, there is so much to be heard in this book. In this case I feel more drawn to a non prefabricated point of view and experience.

Therefore I personally recommend the book or the audio book over the movie, it kept me occupied for weeks after finishing it.

Greetings, Oliver

Review For: The Help (Blu-ray/DVD, 2011, 2-Disc Set)

first of all I was impressed with how fast it got here...way before the due date...The Help was a wonderful movie. I purchased it because of all the hype from those who had read the book. This is my first Blu-ray, I will purchase more blu-ray's.
Purchasing from E-bay is easy, cheeper and and all the movies I have ordered has been in good shape, I only buy movies from e-bay. I passed the Help around to all my friends to prove the point. What difference does color make..I was ashamed of the white ladies and I am a white lady.

The world still needs to improve on their view of different races.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is by far the most remarkable movie I've ever seen in a long time - very accurate accounts!!! Having been a product of the initial desegragation of schools in my state, I experienced first hand, severe victimization efforts. However, after much emotional healing, I discovered that I was feeling the same emotions that their race had... As I grew from this whole effort, I had many dedicated friends from other races. The movie is so loaded with realities, I had to watch it more than once to see them. I guess when I view it again, I will see more. Thank you for such a powerful reality film.

Review For: The Help (Blu-ray/DVD, 2011, 2-Disc Set)

is a great movie. I also read the book and the movie certainly follows the book, unlike some movies. It's happy, sad and such a wonderful story about the lives in the South of wealthy families and their interactions with their "Help" or maids as told by "The Help." Highly recommend
