One of our favorite things to do at the end of the day is to sit back and watch movies as a family. Since I first heard of The Help, I knew it was a movie that I was going to have to see. When it came time to watching, even my husband was drawn in to a movie he acted like he wouldn’t be interested in. The Help immediately became a movie favorite of the year. This movie was amazing and definitely one to put on your list to watch.
Available on Blu-Ray and DVD this Tuesday, December 6th, you can experience this powerful movie as well.
The Help stars Emma Stone as the courage Eugenia ‘Skeeter’ Phelan, who goes against the beliefs of her family and friends to find her own voice. The critically praised, emotional performance of Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark, a woman who secretly dreams of one day having more than she has been given, offers a deep emotional storyline. The breakthrough performance of Octavia Spencer as Minny Jackson, whose sass and tough exterior disguise the pain and fear she faces every day, brings both drama and humor to the film. Bryce Dallas Howard breathes life into the catty Jackson socialite Hilly Holbrook and Jessica Chastain brings charm and humor as Celia Foote, a kind housewife living outside of town who longs to fit in. Sissy Spacek, Allison Janney, and Ahna O’ Reilly also provide vivacious performances that round out this all-star female ensemble.
This movie will leave you with your mind thinking about life in 1963 Jackson, Mississippi.
