This Weeks One To Watch: The Help

I finally got a chance to watch The Help a few weeks ago and I’m not going to beat around the bush, this film is flippin amazing! I can honestly say that it is even better than what I expected it to be! Based on the novel written by Kathryn Stockett, it is a heart wrenching story about Skeeter (played by Emma Stone) who during the civil rights movement of the 1960′s decides to write a book detailing the African American Maid’s point of view on the White families they work for.

Anyone that reads this blog on a regular basis knows how much I love Emma Stone. I thought she rocked in Easy A but this girl just keeps on getting better and better.┬áThis film will make you laugh (thanks to Octavia Spencer‘s sassy ways), cry (thanks to Viola Davis) and overall make you appreciate life. If you’re a fan of films liked The Color Purple and The Secret Life of Bees you will love this.

The Help is out across the UK on Friday!

GEEK FACT: Jessica Chastain, a vegan, ate soy ice cream melted in the microwave to gain weight for the role of Celia Foote.
