The Help



This is for Jackie.  Happy Birthday.


Never heard of the novel of the same name before, but it’s one I will look at.  The Help is about Aibileen a hardworking housekeeper in 1960s Mississipi, who with the help of local white writer Skeeter Phelan talks about her life as a black servant in a time of extreme racism.

I really liked it.  Some parts moving, some insightful, it’s a beautiful looking (and sounding – the score is lush throughout) film cinematography to a beautifully serene score. It has the right combination of tearjerking moments, pathos and humour.  A tear in my eye was found.
The female cast are amazing. Bryce Dallas Howard and Sissy Spacek especially, And check out Jessica Chastain who plays Celia Foote – she is BEAUTIFUL and going to be a star.

The Help



Award season on will be a decent one for this film I think, mainly for acting I think.  Go see it.
