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. This 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!
