The Help

Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis) is a middle-aged African-American maid who has spent her life raising white children and has recently lost her only son; Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer) is an African-American maid who has often offended her employers despite her family's struggles with money and her desperate need for jobs; and Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan (Emma Stone) is a young white woman who has recently moved back home after graduating college to find out her childhood maid has mysteriously disappeared. These three stories intertwine to explain how life in Jackson, Mississippi revolves around "the help"; yet they are always kept at a certain distance because of racial lines.

Movie war: Meryl Streep vs Viola Davis

Reviewed by judithjourno86

I just have a couple of questions:

Just a couple of questions: more centred on Viola Davis' performance in The Help

1. Who acted better Merly Streep or Viola Davis?

2. Why was Viola nominated?

3. Did the movie work?

I loved the movie btw. Its a must watch.

Thank you x

Sad but true with humor interspersed

Reviewed by rlawton

Highly recommend. Hopefully we have moved away from these views of the African American population.

A Story Worth Telling

Reviewed by bertlahr

I had little interest in this movie but left it applauding.

How life was in those days (contrast of white and black) has to give one pause as to how difficult it was if you were black.

Great story, great movie, great cast. WOW

WORTH YOUR MONEY!

Reviewed by MvieViewer

Depending on what your likes are in a movie, you might consider watching. I would say the cast and movie were well done. Loved Emma Stone! A little comedy thrown in with the actual story of black servants during that time, great. Loved it.
