Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 08/18/2011
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A deeply touching human story filled with humor and heartbreak....The actors are sublime."
Los Angeles Times - 08/10/2011
"The movie is richly flavored by the work of a sprawling cast that puts the exceptional Viola Davis and Emma Stone at the film's impassioned center..."
USA Today - 08/12/2011
"The warmly engaging book has been made into an equally affecting movie."
Movieline - 08/10/2011
"THE HELP is Davis's movie, and it's about time."
Hollywood Reporter - 08/07/2011
"Where THE HELP succeeds magnificently though is in character portraits by actresses Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer."
Total Film - 12/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "[E]vocatively directed by Southern-bred Tate Taylor....You'll want second helpings of Spencer's sassy comic timing, Davis' humility...and Allison Janney's brilliant brand of crazy."

Product Description:

A 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black servants behind some of her community's most prominent families. Skeeter (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college, and she's eager to launch her career as a writer. In a moment of inspiration, Skeeter decides to focus her attention on the black female servants who work in her community. Her first subject is Aibileen (Viola Davis), the devoted housekeeper who has been employed by Skeeter's best friend's family for years. By speaking with Aibileen, Skeeter becomes an object of scorn to the wealthy locals, who view her actions as directly challenging to the established social order. Before long, even more servants are coming forward to tell their stories, and Skeeter discovers that friendship can blossom under the most unlikely of circumstances. Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in a touching tale of race relations based on author Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel of the same name.
