Watching “The Help” for a second time was well worth the hours. I’m usually captivated by historical perspectives and stories about writers. This film covered the former fine, but did not adequately characterize the efforts and angst of the author for my taste; that’s okay, it was about “The Help.” For a movie with excellent coverage of the author, see “Genius.”
Would the book be better than the movie for this story? Perhaps I should read Kathryn Stockett’s novel.
