The Help 2011

Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up -- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories -- and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly -- and unwillingly -- caught up in the changing times.

The Help Movie Review by Ben (5/19/2012)

"The Help" comes to us with some controversy as it is based on a 2009 best seller by Kathryn Stockett, a white woman who wrote about African American maids' experience working in the houses of white people. Many would have preferred to have a black man or woman write this story, but it's important to note that Stockett...

The Help Movie Review by Shannon (5/2/2012)

It's during the JFK Presidency and there are talks of civil rights by Martin Luther King but things haven't changed much for the black folks in Jackson, Mississippi and you can see the great division between them and the whites: separate hospitals, different neighborhoods, other parts of the bus and even the female maids,...
