The Help (2011)

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.

The acting was good on all sides, including featured roles for Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, seen on the 2017 big screen in  “Fences” and “Hidden Figures,” respectively.

Would the book be better than the movie for this story? Perhaps I should read Kathryn Stockett’s novel.

  1. This is one of my favourite films of all time!! I read the book after enjoying the movie and I loved it!! I’m not really much of a reader either so it must have been good!

    1. Watching the movie first, then reading the book. That would be my scenario, so good to know someone in my situation “loved it!!” That’s exactly the feedback I needed. Thanks for sharing.
