'the Help' is based on a novel written by Kathryn Stockett at the same name.This movie is currently nominated for Oscar/Academy awards in 3 categories.Best picture,best actress,best supporting actress(2 nominations).Before telling it is a must watch movie,we would like to tell you it is not an entertainer.It is a drama,but not a boring one like 'the social network'.And if you are a racialist,you better stop reading right now and leave this site.In one popular web site i saw some guys talking bad about this movie just because this movie is made on Afro-American people.I feel pity about those b@$+@rd$...
This movie is about a young white woman journalist who decides to write a controversial book from the point of view of maids(also known as 'help') during the civil rights time(1960s) of America.And to expose the racism those poor maids faced while working for white families.
This movie is a must watch if you like drama genre very much.There are scenes which makes you speechless.Director who adapted the story from the book did his best to show the suppressed emotions of the characters.All the actresses who portrayed the main characters acted really well.One of them Octavia Spencer won the golden globe award for best supporting actress role in this movie.We wish this movie will win some in Oscar too.
